Unfortunately yes! Did not even bother looking at the edges, the area I focused, lens boxes with letters and bar codes was evident. Btw, I used single center precision focus point...

Wow, sorry to hear that. Center frame 70mm, the best I saw was, at f/2.8, much better than a 70-200 f/4 IS at 70mm f/4 center frame and the worst at 70mm was maybe a trace better at least the same ballpark, all were definitely better than a good copy of a Tamron 28-75 at 70mm f/2.8. The 70-200 was better at the edges at 70mm though at all apertures (outer 1/8th of frame on the wide sides of the frame).

Stopped by B&H over the weekend and picked up my copy. I'm liking it so far :)

Can some one help me on what method to use to test this len? I just got it today from a local shop, I was expecting waaaaaaahhhhhhh beautiful but I can't seem to see the different between my 18-55mm vs the 24-70, could it because of the camera? I am waiting to get a FF, but in the mean time, it's connected to my t3i, I can not tell the differences when zooming in LightRoom. How do you do test on these?

I would start by going outside with it and shooting around with it with proper lighting.

I think the biggest benefit comes from FF sensors, especially the edge performance wide open at 24mm... Although it look very impressive on crop as well.

Maybe try taking pictures of something other than an iron?

It's gotta be the iron on the bottom. If you can't see the difference, send it to me!

From what I read there are many copy variations..... Where is the quality assurance?

Seems to be the case with the original version of this lens as well... I am guessing the optical formula is so complex even with tight optical tolerances and such, it is extremely difficult to make perfectly consistent lenses. Unlike telephotos and such, for example.

If the bottom picture of the iron is taken with your 24-70 and you don't see a difference then there's not much else we can say. If you want I can buy it from you at a reduced price.
