Everybody's perception of 'soft' is different, practically for every single lens I researched I've heard directly opposite opinions. If you post a test target, I think people would have something objective to compare to their own copies.

I did the tests and didn't see any corner softness issues worth mentioning even compared to the primes. The photozone tests also confirm my findings, at 35mm f/4 the 18-55mm lens is pretty much identical to 35mm/1.4 prime at the same aperture.

So do a controlled testing, you might have a decentered or defective copy.
