It's not bad but I agree, it's not critically sharp. But before you write the lens off as a bad copy (or a bad design) try it at around f/5.6 or f/8. Ideally on a tripod or at least well-braced. At f/13 you're well in diffraction territory (although it seems to me it's still a bit soft even so.) That's not to say f/13 is never a good idea, but it's a bad one for assessing lens sharpness.
