You got lemon lens or need to learn depth of field with this lens.

My Minolta Maxxum 20mm f/2.8 AF is very reliable, works good with close focus while taking landscapes.

Person is taking photos, not camera. When photograph is bad, it's because photographer doesn't know how to choose settings optimal to "own preferences". Then blames camera for bad IQ.
This is same as blaming car about arriving to wrong destination.
