Re: What's the use of better reviews in the face of rampant decentering defects?

A better review at luminous landscape is completely irrelevant as long as quality control is that bad with SONY and decentering defects remain as common among SONY lenses as they are now.

By the way: I had several AF-S Nikkor lenses by Nikon and several EF(-S) lenses by Canon during the last five years. None of these were decentered. SONY has a serious problem here.

Why would luminous landscapes review be completely irrelevant? They obviously didn't have a decentered lens. Anyone that is serious about their photography has to test all their lenses as far as I'm concerned. Testing for decentering probably will take a maximum of 15 or 20 minutes. Lenses can be damaged by poor shipping or many other reasons. I guess I was lucky in getting of version that was clean the first time, but I can tell you I have tested as many as three or four copies of Canon and Nikon lenses without success.  Mass-produced lenses will always have problems.
