Darby124: Ok. I appreciate the extra attention you are giving this camera to verify your impressions. I have one on order. Two questions: a. Exactly what is 'decentering of lens'? b. What is an accurate way for an owner to test the camera at home for this condition? Perhaps you could suggest a few different ideas for home testing? Thanks.

Gotcha. Thanks. I will report my impressions.

I plan to try shooting graph paper and also brick wall, both perpendicular to the camera, and then invert the camera each time. I will mount it on a tripod. This should show if a particular image area has consistent unsharp quality to it which should tell me if my unit has lens de-centering, right?
