Defective lens, return.

Just received the new 50-200 lens and it's unfortunately quite soft at 200mm.

Then send it back, because there should not be any perceptible drop in sharpness at 200mm.

The few lp/mm difference is too small to notice even when pixel peeping. And at 70 lp/mm, the sharpness is basically excellent for a zoom. The best of the best primes pass 90 lp/mm mark.
