Hi Ian,

I love ALL the shots you upload, but noticed something within some of them that I have experienced with my lenses: always zooms.

That is, a noticeable loss of sharpness in one corner or another. Can even vary from shot to shot, maybe dependent on the distance at which the lens focussed and/or which focal length was chosen. I had one lens where it varied from top right to bottom left, and sometimes was just fine. My Sony SLT-a58 has this (very slightly) on all lenses, so I assume it is a tiny misalignment of the sensor or mount, not the lenses themselves (that wouldn't make sense). Not bad enough to trade in the camera. It is just in the bottom right, like your shot here.

I see it here on the lower wall and tall grasses by the fence.

Could it be a slightly decentered lens element, since you have a fixed zoom ?

I assume it doesn't bother you too much, but my brain just keeps diverting my eyes to this kind of thing (sadly).

Looking forward to your future uploads !

All the best,
