Is that sick or what?? I'm part of the camp that thinks "bad copy syndrome" is real and runs rampant online, so properly evaluate your lens before sending it back over and over again. There are all kinds of resources to help you properly do that.

I do not agree there are no defective products.

I do however agree maybe as many as 99% of AF complaints are by photographers who post images confirming they have not learned to select AF detail to a good enough standard to get the best out of their equipment

Producing good quality photographs, or being good at sport or art, involves a little more than buying appropriate equipment. Practice, some learning and perhaps natural talent often play a bigger role than the equipment in your hands.
