Re: If in doubt have it checked....

There is nothing wrong with trying to determine if a lens is working properly or to spec. Determining if a lens is decentered will become obvious without a wall. If you notice that one side is always soft that means send the lens in. Any time a user notices a tendency in a lens that is not normal then have that checked out while the warranty is in effect. Lens anomaly is not as common as folks here believe but it does happen. If you have any doubt especially with an expensive lens it is really worth it to have it checked.


I will try to get it replaced (perhaps..... 'cos I live 350 miles from a city) but then I will be doing more brick wall tests !!! and I am not sure I want to do that, and as some have said here, what I am doing is not very accurate.

Thanks John.
