Not sure about the unevenness. Noticed it after I purchased it, was concerned about it but when I tested it, in real life and on a resolution chart, it was sharp across the frame so I kept it (instead of returning it). My only guess is maybe an adjustment was made to even out the sharpness across the frame since the 40 Limited tends to be sharper on the left side of the frame (at least according to test results at slrgear.com). Not sure if those types of adjustments or calibrations can be made to a lens but it is the only thing I can think of short of a result of being manufactured that way. Only selling now since I upgraded to the newer HD version which isn't quite as sharp as the smc one I am selling but does offer slightly better contrast, flare resistance and bokeh.
