Please help me judge this reconditioned Oly 60mm
Jul 11, 2014

Hey all,

Bought a 'reconditioned' Oly 60 2.8 from the Olympus website recently and was doing some test to see what I actually have here. The images from macro to some distances look really sharp. But when I take pictures that are quite far away (not necessarily at infinity) I notice some softness that appears in the area of the top right corner. And it even appears to run down the right side. And perhaps even along the top...? So I wanted to get your thoughts on what you think of this lens?

Is it common for a lens like this to perform great at some distances but then subpar at others?

Thanks in advance

Tried to load the raw file but it didn't work. Hope the jpg shows what i'm talking about. f 2.8 1/1250 IBIS on ISO Low
