Being new to better cameras and inteterchangeble lenses, I was a bit disappointed to learn about good copy/bad copy. Why can't the manufacturing process/quality control only create/release good copies! :-). I get it though, if all were good we would all pay a higher premium on lenses to maintain those standards (I'm guessing Good to hear that I may have a good one!

I don't think there are any really poor copies of the 16-50 kit lens. But I imagine in testing there is a tolerance band they have to pass, and some pass with flying colors while others just make it.

The 16-70 f/4 ZA has quite a reputation for some bad copies. I was fortunate to buy mine used from a friend who move up to full frame; I'd already used it and knew his was a fine copy.

The "why" of the QC problems is another matter: I don't have a clue, nor have I read anything about it.
