Oly 17mm 1.8 - open very soft - bad copy?

I bought a Oly 17mm 1.8 and did many test shots. The result is always the same: It's pretty soft at f1.8.

At smaller apertures it is pretty good in my opinion. In comparison to my Oly 12-40 it is even better.

My 45 1.8 and 25 1.8 don't show such a massive difference wide open compared to stopped down.

Do i have a bad copy or what do you think?

Thx for your opinion.
