Panasonic/Leica 8-18mm lens. User error or bad copy?

Used G9 with the level on the LCD or VF. Very hard to keep the photo straight, a good amount of shots are slanted to the right. Seems better when using the electronic shutter, as the mechanical one seems to introduce a slight shock making my hand move, possibly.

Please let me know your thoughts to help me determine whether it is a user error (not very used to wide angles like that) or a bad copy, in which case I'll return it. Thank you.

That one seems okay to me.

Might be okay also.

Optical illusion or that bad?
