I am not surprised. One should always be questioning test that shows results
But one have to believe them as they have actually tested (?) the lens.
tested a lens with a glass turned backwards (was it not "gma" who had
on his 35/2.8 ?) and therefore got the bad result?
Good to hear a positive comment on the 180/2.8 though.

I have heard this to.

Good luck! Hope you will find one!
