21mm f/3.2 AL Limited

Have had one of these for about 4 weeks and just started using it in anger, only to find a huge bubble on the middle element.This is clearly visible when you hold it up to the light .

Has anyone else had problems with these lenses?

I've had mine for several years. Love it, with no problems at all.

That is the first time I've read about a bubble on a Limited lens, that's some bad bad bad luck.

Hmm... How come i think this "bubble" reported is actually just the air space between the elements formula? Need a pic!

Yes we need a picture. I can confirm that mine has no visible bubble, and I just loooooove it.
