D800 + 16-35 very weak at long end?

Hi there. Got my D800 yesterday together with the 16-35mm. From the reviews i would have expected weak performance at 16mm, but mine is weak at 35mm. The center is good, but the edges are very soft. Shot from a tripod, focused using live view (sharpest focus i could get on the edges was also the sharpest in center) and Mup.

First, for 16mm:

and then 35mm

Anybody here, who has some examples at 35mm?

Nikon D800
