Nikon 50mm 1.8G Lens Calibration

I bought a Nikon 50mm 1.8G lens a few years back but I never liked it much as I found the image wasn't that sharp at anything below f5.6. I used Reikan FoCal software to calibrate the lens and it came up with -10, after dialing in that number the lens seems a lot sharper. I shot off a few quick photos at f 1.8 and f5.6, would like someones opinion if image sharpness has improved.
