Is it worth Calibrating?

I would like your opinion on whether it's worth my while having my 15-45mm calibrated (or if calibrating would even help).

I got the lens with the M5 as part of the kit. I have only used it a few times and usually for family type shots indoors where the priority is to have faces in focus. For this purpose the lens is excellent, sharp, small and indiscreet. However, I took it out at the weekend and took a few shots at a park (autumn trees etc) and noticed a serious issue at the border, on the right side. The shot becomes very blurry, with details almost smeared looking. I tried a few different shots at different apertures, focal lengths etc and they all have the same issue.

I have a Tamron 17-50mm for my walkabout lens, and Canon 10-18mm IS for landscape etc, so the 15-45mm isn't essential. But I really like the size and portability/ flexibility of this lens.

Just wondering could this be corrected and would it be worth it (cost etc).
