Seriously, the whole right field of this lens is out to lunch.  Wicked CA's all over (10-15pixels at extremes)... that are easily visible on the Df, debilitatingly so on the d810..  Poor sharpness (or good blurriness if you prefer) even stopped down.  This lens never gets used.  I need to send it in, but haven't had the motivation.  Just plain bummed on it.

Positives:  Build quality, tactile feedback, smooth zoom but pretty creepy, well balanced.  Did I just say in the short list of positives that the thing is well balanced.  Jeez - I'm really reaching here.  I'm hoping that the iq of the replacement makes me eat these words.  I'm sure there are great copies out there, I just don't have one of them.
