To the OP: please post images like the ones that Ken posted. Are the lenses decentered or tilted? You can tell be focusing on the target in the bad corner.

Currently I am not at home so I can not post the pictures at the moment because they are on my hard drive.

I don’t test my lenses indoors but like this: http://www.gletscherbruch.de/foto/test/dezentrierung/dezentrierung.html

It might not be as sophisticated as the test Ken did but still it should result in 4 corners with the same level of sharpness when the copy of the lens is perfect.

If I focus both not-so-perfect-copies of the Z 35/1.8 on the bad corner it gets as sharp as I would expect. This probably means that it’s tilted and not decentered, right? Until I read your answer I have to admit that I always thought that decentered and tilted mean the same.
