da 21mm decentering defect

Some one knows how much of a decentering defect is in range of factory defaults.
I have a second copy of the da 21mm, the first had haevy decentering defect, was like a Tilt-shift lens.
The 2. still shows a bit softer right border-corners, not much but...
keep it or retry?

If you're not 100% satisfied, exchange it or it will continue to nag you. Or search for a second hand FA 20mm f/2.8.

Retry. Unlike the 12-24 I previously owned, my DA21 suffers no centering issues at all. You must be unlucky.
