Re: Down on the 18-55 O.I.S.

To be sure that the 18-55mm is VERY sharp just go the photozone review Analysis section

It's impressive

Regretably they experienced one decentred sample

This is unfortunately a very common disease with lenses even very expensive ones (the Canon 100-400mm has suffered from this didisease.... too)

Assuming that the copy is OK,the sharpness is excellent and the way reviewers test for sharpness are really evidence based vs free comments about "web quality"

Any sample with obvious defects should be returned for replacement

My first copy had a broken OIS Got now a good one without centering issue
