Nikon 16-80 disappointing

well used Nikon 18-105 from my D90 days is now my daily on my D500 and figured it was time to get something better. So a 16-80 2.8 was ordered last week

so far the first one is a blurry mess so was sent back after hours of trying AF Tune to improve (all I achieved was getting the 18-105 even sharper)

i was able to change it and the replacement is better, but compared like for like against the 18-105 it’s usually just not as sharp

colours are debatably perhaps a shade better but not much in it so between that and the sharpness appearing to lack its £900 for an extra stop,

cant help feel I’m missing something, expecting all round better glass for a general walk about lense it just doesn’t seem to achieve much.

Nikon D5 Nikon D500 Nikon D90
