Is this lens a BAD copy ????????????

The Lens Align Ruler looks horrible, indistinct focus point at F1.8 and CA in both directions each side of the fuzzy focus point. I am really bummed by this.

Can someone post some 100% crops so I can see what their copy is like?

Ah, you drank the Kool Aid too, eh? I almost did too. Instead I drank the green one and got the f/1.4G and thought, "hmmm, okay." Still, it's better than my f/1.8 AF.

Shot both side by side and the 1.8G is superior to the 1.4G on my D800.

Sorry. You spent a lot, but at least you got to post that comment!
