PS: I doubt that the soft corners are realted to bad QC on the Sony lens, I think that this is a design decission.

matching a small lens optimiced to look good on the spec sheet to a 1" sensor seems to be very difficult. Most likely the bad corner and macro performance is the compromis Sony has been willing to make.

many people are perfectly happy with that.

This is the reason why I hope for a good 1/1,7" sensor in the XZ-2, because I doubt that it would be possible to match a good but small lens to an 1" sensor.

The 1" 20MP sensor itself is VERY good for its size, but I'm sure that we will also see very good 1/1,7" sensors.
