OK, again - I'm always amazed at how...

...some folks can use a lens such as this and achieve stellar results and report accordingly, while some others may trash the lens and then talk about poor results.  The same holds true for cameras also - but the key variable here is if it's a problem across the board, or just a bad copy.  Some will bash a particular camera model, while others will sing its praises - go figure.  So who's right here?  I happen to think that the OP is NOT!  Of course, if you have a bad copy of anything, your viewpoints will be shaped by that particular product.

However (and this is a huge "however"), if based on just one copy of the lens, you proclaim to the world that this particular product (in general) sucks to the max and is overrated, then expect some (or plenty) of blowback.

Let the games begin.
