Here's the scoop on the Sony 35mm. ALL of them have a tilt that will manifest itself in a noticeably less detailed right or left side.

How do you know that?

He may be referencing the infamous / notorious LR blog article in which 10 of 10 FE35's were out-of spec. It "earned" being in the category which at the time was described in another article as "crap shot q/c" (from 4.0 to 5.0).

So a more accurate statement might be "10 of 10 FE35's were rejects".

That doesn't preclude yours (JK) being fine.

IIRC, the FE90 was 4.5, also significantly under a consistency/variance score of 5.0, which also put it in the "crap shot q/c" category. I think you've been more than impressed with your copy, but maybe I'm thinking of someone else, or another lens you own.
