Re: XF 18-55 Soft Corners?

I certainly wouldn't dream of judging a zoom lens by prime standards. But the blurry (not soft, definitely blurry) extreme corners I'm seeing on landscape shots at f8 are not quite as described in some reviews.

That said, centring seems perfect, both copies I've owned have been sharp across 90pc+ of the frame and both have exhibited similar performance. So, I think I was wrong to return the first copy and was expecting too much.

I'd be interested to hear if anyone else is seeing blurry corners on their copy of the lens. Again, 100pc pixel peeping required, which is not something I'd generally encourage
