As soon as you open the box, subject the replacement to exactly the same tests.

And good luck.

I just got it exchanged. This one is good! I'm happy now.

I'm not gonna do the newspaper test, because it takes quite a bit of setup time. I'm just gonna do the "textbook" test. There is still some softness, but much less than the previous one.

Presuming that these were shot at approximately the same focal length and aperture, these are a vast improvement over the last images you posted. Congratulations!
