Sony Alpha a6000 (16-50mm kit lens) - Very blurry around edges?

Hi everyone, I'm new here. I just picked up a Sony A6000 with the 16-50mm kit lens, and I am a little underwhelmed with the image quality so far. I am trying to figure out whether it's just me, or whether there is something wrong with the camera/lens. Here is a photo I took for testing:

Notice how the letters on the keyboard get very blurry towards the edge of the photo? I tried taking the same photo with various settings, but it always looks that way. This one is in "Superior Auto" with focus mode "single-shot AF" and focus area "wide".

Here are two crops to illustrate the problem.

Center (good):

Edge (bad):

I understand that the kit lens is probably not the best, but this seems a bit much. Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks in advance for your advice!
