Does my m.zuiko 7-14mm have a flaw?

I have had this lens since July 2017 and noticed that on some wide angle shots, the lower left corner is blurry.

It doesn't appear on all shots, however, so I'm wondering if perhaps this is just how the lens acts, since it is wide angle and there will be distortion when wide at certain focal lengths?

Here are three examples of the blurring. The backyard shot is blurry in the same area, but doesn't show up as much since it is just grass.

I have not set up any test shots; will probably ask my optics scientist brother in law to help me, but if some of you have had this experience and say it is normal, then I won't bug my relative for his help.

Since it is still under warranty, I guess I could send it in just to be safe, so that is an option.

thanks for any advice,
