Thanks, Tom.  I know Frank recently had this problem with his 75, but it was
a used lens.  I haven't heard any other reports of this problem.  In any
event, the good Dr. Yao will be testing the lens for focusing accuracy
before shipping it off to me.

For any LUGgers not yet acquainted with him, I highly recommend doing
business with Joseph Yao.  He really goes the extra mile.
