Looks bad, assuming the 50-200 is on the left. What were your exposure settings? Tripod or no? IS on or off? What body? Filter or no filter? AF or MF?

It was hand held, 1/500, f4, no filter, IS on, AF single. The 100-400 same except f5.1 and slight ISO difference.

It's defective for sure either with the OS unit or the optics/mechanics. The post here was really to share and find out if this was a one-off or possible bigger issue as some zoom lenses certainly do soften up at the extremes. Not many owners have replied so far to help verify how isolated this is.
