Well.... I haven't. Have you a filter on the end of the lens barrel ?
Sometimes the depth of a filter housing can cause your problem.
Curious it's just on one side however..!

It looks as if there is a lens hood attached, which is not quite all the way snapped into the lugs. This is fairly common on some cameras. Another common occurrence, is the front of the lens resting against something like a window, slightly pushing the lens off center when the picture is taken.

If it is not the lens hood or a filter, try gently pushing against the lens and see if it changes. If so, it could be a slightly mis-aligned sensor. Or possibly a lens that's worn and sagging. I've seen it before with superzooms.

If you can't zoom through it, that's probably what it is.

Thank you, from what I was told lens hood is not involved, as for worn lens, cam is less than 9 months old only about 540 pic on the counter so I am not sure that is the case here, Do you think this is a result of a physical damage? ie: camera was dropped or someone pushed against the lens when was extended ?
