Here is why:

Soft corners in a 4x6? In a $250 lens?

Bad quality control? Maybe. How does that make it a good lens? How does that help those who got bad lenses?

Does any other modern lens from a major manufacturer have corners this bad?

Look at the MTF chart at

http://store.sony.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10551&storeId=10151&langId=-1&productId=8198552921666192755

Contrast dives to zero in the corners. It isn't just sample variation.
