Re: Terrible results using Pentax DA 40 2.8 XS

Just post the full image next time. So much easier to diagnose.

From what I can see, classic decentering. Lens got dropped or bashed, the glass elements are no longer on axis with the sensor.

Symptoms: uneven haze/blur worse in certain areas of the frame.

My Nikon 1 10mm went the same way after my daughter dropped it...
