As long as the beam isn't hitting the side of the aperture cap it is fine. Don't go through the trouble of RMAing it over a small problem like the beam being slightly off center.

I have seen this discussed a number of times here and experienced it myself. I would guess it is down to the complicated alignment of LD, crystal, lenses.

It doesn.t look too bad, as long as you can live with it.

Yup, pretty normal. My alpha 125 isn't perfectly straight either.

I use energizer lithiums. If you use rechargeables you may notice a very slight drop in power, as I believe they are around 1.2v There is a way you can pot mod it so that the power will be the same on the rechargeables but I do not recommend this unless you know exactly what you're doing.

I use Sanyo Eneloops. They're a lot better than any other one's I've used.
