I seem to have received a very good copy. I have mostly been shooting portraits and some travel photos in Chicago, and I haven't noticed any issues. Today was the first day I did any sort of testing with it. I really only tested because this thread made me curious. Since it's late, I only did some simple unscientific tests: an ISO chart taped to a flat wall, a keyboard and looked at key sharpness, etc. The corners on my copy all look roughly identical in flat scenes wide open at f/1.8. Certainly sharp within my abilities
There is definitely CA from f/1.8 - f/2.2 in certain light. I usually shoot it around f/2.2-2.8 to avoid it, but it's certainly usable even at f/1.8. My copy is razor sharp like so many examples in this thread. Eyelashes are amazing with this lens, even wide open.
I ordered mine at B&H on release day. I didn't pre-order, just ordered while they were in stock for a short period of time that day.
Very sorry to see the troubles many are going through. I hope Sony gets their act together on QC soon. Best of luck to all!
