24-120mm f4 look soft

Received the 24-120mm f4 based on the rebate program. It turns out to be MSRP because they used to sell it $300 more than the MSRP. Anyway I took some shots after opening the box and I found the photos to be soft regardless of focal length and apertures. Here is just two photos. Will take more. Shoot with D300. On first photo the focus point is about on the very left leaf in the middle line. On second photo the focus point is on tree top of the middle palm tree.
