Yup, same thing here.

Mine is indeed a bit soft at 1.8 and excellent at 2.8. I've been there too, I had the ZD50mm which was insanely sharp even at f2 so at first I was a little disapointed but truth to be told it's still acceptable and a touch of softness can actually be desirable for a portrait lens (the ZD50mm was sometimes told as too sharp for portrait ).

I've seen some threads talking about it and it concurs with some reviews I've read. Don't obsess about it and enjoy all the qualities it has (fast focusing, cheapness and lightness).
