Rokinon 12/2 - Sharpness issues?

I bought this lens from BHPhoto a couple of months ago but have just now got a chance to really work with it.  I'm coming away very disappointed with my results.  Even stopped down to f/8 or f/11 I'm getting a lot of softness throughout the frame.

Below is an example.  Nothing in the frame seems to be acceptably sharp.  I don't think I'm missing focus by THAT much - hyperfocal distance with a 12mm at f8 is pretty ridiculous anyway isn't it?

Would love some feedback.
