After 2 weeks, I finally got my lens back. Actually it is a replacement lens from a new batch that came from Japan. Tamron acknowledged there was a problem and apparently they couldn't fix it so instead sent me a new one. The new one still required MA but it is better although not perfect. I still cannot MA the center AF point to match the peripheral points but the difference is a lot smaller but still noticeable. I might be able to live with this. The difference is about 3 MA points whereas before it was about 6-8. Pretty disappointed because this lens is quite sharp when it is focused properly. I'm really surprised more people don't notice this issue because I test 2 others at the shop and they all exhibited the same problem.
