Your results are NOT normal! My Sony 35mm 1.8 OSS is tack sharp with excellent contrast at F1.8 on my Nex 6.

I was shocked when I first got the lens and saw just how sharp it is wide open.

Your lens is defective. I would strongly suggest you return it for a replacement.

What's 'normal' -- there is no way to say unless somebody collects meaningful statistics. What's 'tack sharp' and 'excellent contrast' depends on who's evaluating, it means very different things to different people. If I had a dime for every time people called mediocre lenses 'tack sharp' I would have been a millionaire.

Bottom line, if you want to make a meaningful statement post some meaningful tests or point to the sites where such testing is done.
