Hmm...the right corner is noticeably softer than the left corner in the long distance performance image.  Is the sample decentered?

There is a distance difference, not easy to see, but this has been discussed for images from other lenses same target,,,

Interesting. I'm surprised how the 58G fares in the bookshelf example. After all, this lens is widely thought to have above-average bokeh. Could the test sample be decentered? The blur does not seem to emanate in a circular manner. On the other hand, the same is true for the Mitakon...
