RX100M3 left side & corners blurrier - bad lens?

Hmm, did some JPEG test shots with my new RX100M3 that arrived last night. I have owned both previous models and don't recall seeing corners this blurry or one side noticeably worse on them.

Is my M3 decentered or something? I'm no expert on this sort of thing, but I'm not liking what I'm seeing. This can't be normal. Compare the right and left sides and corners.

I guess I'll send it back and do an exchange. *sigh* Thankfully Crutchfield is very good about returns/exchanges.
