Some lenses do better than others at a wide aperture. So you have to ask yourself if you care, and if so, whether or not you can live with it.

The other alternative is to not use it wide open. Try f4 and it might be fine. If you're outside, f8 may look great! I have a lens that I'm often annoyed with when used wide-open, but get it to f8 (and often less), and I love it.

Although I'm sure lab-testing is ideal, the bottom line is how something looks to you.

If you buy a lens with a aperture of 1.4 or 2.8, you buy it because you want to take pictures with 1.4 or 2.8. So they have to be good at this aperture.
If i want to take pictures ad f8 every lens will do.
