Distortion on 16-55G is horrible on my copy

I have shot this lens on my a6500 at 16, 24 & 35mm and did not remove from the tripod and repeated with my 16-35GM and they are virtually identical from a sharpness standpoint all across the frame.

However the distortion is horrible on my copy.

Today I repeated the test with my a7rIV to see if they are still resolving the same detail and actually they are very close but the distortion on the wide end render the lens unusable I do not care how well LR corrects it when they get the profile it is moving too many pixels around for my taste.

16-55 G at 16mm on my a7riv same issues on my a6500
