Pixelpeepers only! XF 16-55mm f/2.8 slightly soft in extreme corners

Pixelpeeping is a terrible affliction. I know minor imperfections don't matter in a photo, but my OCD just cannot block them out and they lurk like worms at the back of my skull.

While reviewing my photos from this morning @100% I noticed that extreme corners @18mm look quite soft. So I took the camera to my tril brick wall and there it was - unmistakably soft extreme corners at 18-19mm.

16mm is better than 18mm, but still softer ever-so-slightly in extreme corners @100%, 23mm same as 16mm, 35-55mm perfectly sharp.

I chose 16-55mm f2.8 for its superb sharpness and even though this is not a dealbreaker I would like to know if anyone else experienced something similar?
