50mm f/1.8 OSS: really not that impressive or just a bad copy?

Hello evreyone.

I saw a good deal from my local store on Sony 50mm f/1.8 OSS lens and decided to give it a try. I'm impressed (and, I guess, a bit spoiled) with my Sigma lenses performance even wide open, so was expecting something similar from Sony lens. However, it was "so-so", to say the least. It was open box copy, so maybe it was just a bad one. Or maybe I shouldn't expect more from this lens? Anyway, I passed on that copy and ordered another one which will be delivered in 3 days. Meanwhile I wanted to ask your opinion on that. Is it ok? I don't need this lens that much, I'm waiting for Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DC DN or whatever it will be, which I will definitely buy, considering how good 16 and 30mm are, it's just a good deal in the store.

Anyway, here are few sample shots I made today in a store. AF-S, center point.
