Vario-elmar 18-56mm softness

My Vario-elmar 18-56mm lens produces very soft images (raw to tiff) which require quite a bit of sharpening. This is at f5.6 to f10. Does any one else have similar issues with this lens?  I did contact Leica support and was basically told that the 24MP sensor is too good for the lens which begs the question why make this lens in the first place?! I use photoshop and Nik software. I enclose a couple of images before and after sharpening. Camera is a TL2. Image at f8.
