Question for Nikor 37-70 F2.8D owners

I just purchase an used 35-70mm, F2.8D and after some test shots I've found that it's very soft at 50-70mm wide open (yes, I put it on tripod and shot with IR remote). I have to stop down to F4 or smaller to get useable IQ at that focal lens!

Is it normal if the lens clunk (rattle) if I give a little shake

Do I have a lemon?
