Hi Wayne,
Fortunately, Roger's blogs/articles will survive on his site.  That article was 
12 years ago and I was fussing because the lens will be used wide open on a 42 
megapickle cam with 
aspirations for a large print if all turns out.  I certainly learned early on 
that very precise focusing is key to testing and do that manually under highest 
magnification and then review the images at max mag to be sure have the best 
I really didn't want an obviously weak corner.  It was not a stinker lens as 
outlier but clearly not top tier. The softness was just visible on my monitor 
at normal viewing mag and very easy to see at 100%.  My Loxia was definitely 
decentered but I never use it but stopped down, so didn't bother with the 
aggravation of an exchange as it would not make difference in any scenario for 
which I was likely to use it.  Anyways I am happier with the lens and will take 
better images regardless, because I am happier with the lens.  Could the 
softness be evened out in post--perhaps, but that is not the point.
