Can anybody tell me how these two (100% crops) are performing? Do I have a sharp copy?

OK, I would say the first crop is definitely good but not the 2nd. Of course it would have been preferable if you had included a duck shot for the test:lol: :lol: :lol:

Congrats on the lens! :)

First crop looks good to me, second looks OOF.
Any EXIF?

Btw, how do you find the push-pull zoom?

By the looks of the traffic sign, you have a cracked lens.
Hopefully it is still in warranty.

:) :)

Congrats. You're going to love this baby!

Because it's a new lens - it's not unusual to want independent confirmation that you haven't bought a bad one.
