My 570IS is broken, right?

I'm not crazy for thinking that this camera has some kind of a major lens problem, am I?

Notice that the subects in center frame are (mostly) in focus, although even they are not perfectly sharp. But around the edges I'm seeing massive distortion that I presume to be lens-related. At higher zoom levels, the distortion moves into the center of frame as well and renders any shot useless.

Just looking to make sure this isn't a well known issue or something that can be easily resolved before sending it in for repair.

Some samples:
