Re: Even in its smudginess, the Nikon is not symmetric either

Hi Trevor,

Before getting too involved in lens tests showing pictures on this site where it's difficult to see faults due to compression/posting/ different peoples screens etc, try using distant scenes where the focus will be effectively fixed on infinity, it will be shots like this which show decentering most obviously because you will always be at the center point relative to infinity so there's no skewed shots, distant trees etc show blur very well.

Rely on your "own" opinions and decide calmly,  there are a lot of defensive people here who don't want to hear any criticisms against Pentax and can conclude that you are searching for problems and the like. I put forward my experiences just to find myself labeled as someone who just looking for faults. Lastly if you decide to return the lens then do it, there are plenty of others out there which perform up their specs.

Good luck, your better placed to see your images than anyone else.
