How bad can you possibly make what should be a decent lens?
  OK just a quick one.....I found a S/H copy of the AF-S 50mm F1.4G for good price....and the guy offered to come to my boat for the transaction.


   Here's the result in all it's glory!! 


    Needless to say I didn't buy it. I took ten shots or so.


   It took some time before the guy realized how bad the lens was, as he had used it little and only stopped down, eventually after realizing that I wasn't trying to have one over on him, it dawned that the guarantee was well past and he had effectively a useless lens on his hands.


   The motto is check those lenses as soon as they arrive!


   Probably the worst lens I've ever tried....which is a pity because it was a good price at €200!


   PS. taken at F1.4. Even stopped down to F8 still gave poor edges and torn corners.
