Re: Another is my Sony 1670z good? thread

I completely agree that some shots seem completely soft and defocused. Issue is I was on a tripod, with OSS turned off, on a completely calm day. With a small single point focus and a 2 second timer. I took the test images the exact same way as I did with the previous lens (which was very soft on edges, but nice in the center), as this lens--which at certain focal lengths the entire right side seems completely out of focus to me.

I agree---it's not about shooting brick walls. However, I plan to use this lens for some landscape and architecture work and dealing with such soft images for $1000 is a bit ludicrous.  I take the test samples of a Brick wall because they are the most controlled "natural" environment and very quick to get an assessment.
