Are your 16-35 VR corners unusable?

Hi friends,

I have Nikon 16-35 f4 VR and 18-35G, want to love 16-35 for VR and build quality, as I like to shoot without tripod when traveling. Use it on d800.

If I focus to second half of frame or infinity even f8-f10 corners are unusably even resized to 2000px. Is there 1) lens issue and I need to send for calibration 2) some secrets with focus points on UWA?

When focus on half of frame, or 1/3 first half of frame, corners are acceptable.

The same focus points with 24-70 or 18-35 has good corners, acceptable. Comparing with 16-35 they are perfect.
Any ideas about this lens? Thanks for help.

I still don't believe that my new 70-200 f4 beats Zeiss 100 f2 and Nikon 85 f1.8. But this is true!
