Fuji 23mm 1.4 Question

I just got my Fuji 23mm 1.4 and 56mm f1.2 lenses in my mail. The 56mm appears excellent right out of the box. However, the 23mm 1.4 appears to have some sort of Ghosting wide open. This seems to get rectified by f2.

I normally am not this picky, but the lens costs $900. So, I expect it to perform wide open. If not, I could probably save a lot of money & go for the 23mm f2. Could owners out there please comment if this is what can be expected wide open? Should I get this exchanged?

Here it is wide open @ f1.4

Stopped only 1 stop @ f2 clears everything up!
