Soft at f=18, family photo?

From what I read on test results for this lens, it is slightly sharper at f=18 mm than longer focal lengths.    So all I can think is that someone was saying it was soft compared to prime lens?  which of course it is.  But it should be more than good enough for a family snapshot.
