For whatever it may be worth. this was taken with my 55 - 300 mm lens at 260 mm ( I thought I had it at 300 mm). It is full size.

Looks pretty sharp to me!

Really.? either the lens isn't square or is badly decentered.!

Bottom left is oof compared to the rest of the image.

This is easily visible in the non expanded image and glaring if you look 1:1.

Possibly a smudge on the lens as well.

I know I said I did not want to hijack this good thread, but I did want to report that I found the OOF area in the bottom left to be reproducible, so hopefully the problem is with my copy and not with the lens in general. I say hopefully, because it is still under warrenty and surely Pentax will not say that OOF is within spec and will fix it. It will be a while before I can send it in though, because I need it for a trip. Without it my longest reach is 135 mm.

Thanks for bringing the problem to my attention. I guess I just didn't look beyond the card.
