I don't own the dock, but I probably should pick one up. If I do end up taking this lens back it will simply be to pick up another and hope for better results. Your image is much sharper than mine!

Out of curiosity, did you have to make microadjustments to your lens? If so, did you use the dock or camera?

My lens arrived with pretty bad front focus at closer focus distances and almost perfect focus at longer focus distances. I adjusted it using the dock for +17 at focal distances under a meter, something like +1 or 2 at longer distances. It's now excellent.

Should it have arrived perfect? Of course - but am I glad I could sort it out easily? Oh yes.
