This is a fantastic lens; I love my copy. Produces images very similar to my DA limited primes. Best of luck in the sale.

It is a nice lens. I've decided to move to Fujifilm xt1 though. Thank you

A forum member asked me if the copy that I have is a good copy. I don't have my K3II anymore to post photos but I have one shot taken handheld inside my office. I know that is not very helpful but I'll post it anyway.

Some copies of this relatively expensive lens suffer from decentered lens issues, I think. That symptom is identifiable if you shoot a subject with the lens at infinity focus, set at f5.6. If you have some test shots at f5.6 that you have retained in your laptop, check the extreme edges of the photos. If one side is sharp, while the other side is blurry, then your copy may have decentered lens issues. More so if the center of the photo is blurry at f5.6. Another test to ensure that you have a good copy is to shoot at f5.6 for 20mm, 30mm and 40mm focal lengths and check if there is a degradation in sharpness.

Thank you. I don't have any other photos. I accidentally returned one of the defective K3II cameras to Amazon without removing my SD card! I've ordered a K50 and I'll do that test as soon as I get it.

Sounds like something I'd do. I've lost a few CD's that way when selling cars.

I still didn't get my K50 but I've found another still photo that was taken at 38mm, f/14, ISO 100, and 4sec (Tripod). I guess this was a pixel shift test because the file is 9mb.

Yeah! I always forget something when I have to return it back. Thankfully, I don't do that so often.
