After having tested my new 16-50 during the weekend I must conclude, that it is still inaceptable.
It shows a moderate back focus at all focal lengths giving slightly out of focus images most of the time.
I will send it in with camera for adjustment again.

My first lens was a dud - no SDM focus.
My second lens seems ok, not really sure what to look for in faults?? Focus issues.

My serial is 90170XX
Go to this web site and download the focus test chart. Follow the instructions as stated and you can know for sure how your lens is performing.

All these posts are very disappointing. I returned the one I got and have been waiting to see if this problem will be corrected. Apparently not.
