EF-M 18-150 Across the Frame Sharpness samples...

I've basically all but given up on the all-in-one super zooms. Mainly, IMO, the lack of suitable sharpness in the corners. The center areas in most lenses are abundantly sharp - but I've yet to see the kind of corners in these superzoom lenses that would convince me to get one. But let's face it, with these types of lenses come optical trade-offs.  With all of the glass involved, something usually gives - either issues with sharpness on the wide end or conversely on the long end.

For those of you with the 18-150, if you don't mind the inconveniences involved, could you please post some samples - let's say with images shot at F8 or higher to see if the sides have sharpened up a bit - scenics would be nice. I'm re-evaluating eventually getting this lens because I do want to have something that would cover from wide to long zoom - but I'd prefer to have one that won't give me lots of mush in the corners.

Thanking you in advance...
