sigh...ya, gotta be the lens then, need to replace it again.....really waste of time.
I used manual focus on both lens, and took couple photo with slight changes in distance, and picked out the sharpest of them for cropping......nothing wrong with focus, because i can tell its a different kind of blur when out of focus.

can't believe after 2 replacements...its still not a good copy.

Thank you all for the help~

Hey, I've been there man. Three copies for me and that was it. If weather sealing on a standard zoom is really important to you, get a 18-55 II WR. If you want a lens with much better optical quality, no SDM, and lower cost, get the Tamron 17-50.
