I had rented a 16-70 and was pretty much wowed by it. Purchased a 'good as new' used lens from the most reputable retailer out there and wasn't nearly as impressed. Wound up buying a star chart (about $30) and found it was decentered. Purchased a new lens, tested satisfactorily, and am as impressed with the new lens as I was the rented one. If you're not impressed with the lens is it possible you've got a bad copy?
