Defective?

Pics showing the softness compared to the Panny 100-400 @ 200mm - for the non-believers!

Seriously now, I've had many lenses. I know what a good lens looks like. I know what a bad lens looks like. This is a bad lens, sample of 1. So I had hoped other Panny Leica 50-200 owners could post samples of their lens @ 200mm so I feel better about going through the lens lottery and exchange this one for another.

Before anyone points this out: yes, the time of day was different between the two lenses being used by 1.5hrs but that has zero affect on the sharpness - or lack of.

Thanks!

If It's in proper focus and you don't have any filters on it, then it may be a defective lens.
