I'm not advocating the pursuit of perfection. Roger C. from lensrentals is highly instructive here, deeming the search for perfect copy of a lens = "a fool's errand". It is also a HUGE dis-service to the retailer (& ultimately the rest of us) to try, and return, multiple copies of a lens. As long as it works (AF&MF) and is not conspicuously de-centered, I will buy a used lens, and keep new ones!

Agree 100%.

However, a slight decentering is unlikely to matter if the lens model is usually sharp corner-to-corner. Another reason why I'm leaning towards prime lenses these days...
