TZ81 - asymmetric corner sharpness / blur

Hello everybody,

I've been playing with my TZ81 for 1.5 months and I've started noticing that at wide angles the sharpness on the right side of the image is noticeably worse (blurred) than on the left side. For example:

Shot at 4.3mm (24mm)

Shot at 5mm (28mm equiv)

So today I've setup a small test using a tripod and a printed page on the wall, this is the result (I've tried with both the stabilizer on an off, and at different apertures, always with center spot af):

4.3 mm (24 mm), f3.3, stabilizer off

Looking at the RW2 image without any correction I've also noticed that the right side of lens barrel is more prominent than the left side:

RW2 -> JPG (no correction)

What do you think? Would it be worth sending the camera for repair?

thank you for your opinions!
