Re: mine does that too @f4.5, much less though

That's veiling haze which is common for this lens wide open. I don't think it's a very good idea to shoot it wide open if you're after sharpness. Stopped down @f5.6 it gets very good in my case. How does that look one or two stops down in your case?

That veiling haze happens in any FL ( I've never seen that on any lens I've had ) and it takes at least two stops to clean and get reasonably sharp. I'm convinced the best thing to do is just ditch it!
