I have been racking my brain trying to figure out what was wrong and couldn't see it until I read your post. Of course . . . the lenses is open too much. During a photography course that I took, it was pointed out that one should strive to use an f/stop somewhere in the middle of the range of the lens. I believe they referred to it as a "sweet spot". A rule of thumb perhaps, as each lens would most likely be different.

Forgot to mention in the last quote. By the way about shooing wide open even though the lens is best one to two stops from wide open. I have no problem doing that and do so very frequently if I have to. It depends on the available light. I know I can get it snappy during PP. I'll take the faster shutter speeds, nice Bokeh and less noise over everything else.
