Unrealistic expectations if you expect a wide angle zoom to be sharp in the edges/corners at F/2.8 or even F/4.

The very best, and I mean the absolute very best wide angle PRIMES aren't sharp edge to edge at F/2.8, so expecting a zoom to do it is nuts.

I'm not a fan of Sigma wide zooms (although I have a bunch of other Sigma art glass) because I've never been happy with their edges/corners, even stopped down to F/9, but I'm picky, yet I think if you're happy with the edges/corners at F/8, you're doing pretty well!

So I think you're good to go, just need to re-adjust the expectations...
