Just wanting to see comments regarding the G2 regarding getting it set up (calibration).

Main areas I'm looking at are:

* how far off was focus at various FLs on your copy?

* was your copy sharp out of the box or did you have to exchange it?

* Would you recommend this lens to someone else?

I'm about ready to order one (I sort of decided not to go with some of the other options I talked about in my other posts) and give it a try (I have the dock BTW so I can adjust it).

Just wanting to see if more people had issues or if on the whole, people had little issues and their copies are now sharp (or were sharp out of the box)./

I know there are some variables at play here, but I'm looking more in general.

Perfect out of the box.

Very sharp.

Very easy to recommend.  I use for a variety of uses including panning for some sport. Very, very good and at the cost it's at in the UK (compared to the newest Nikon) its a steal.  It also got a five star rating from the Nikon magazine in the UK too.  Enough said.
