Would you accept this Tamron 70-180mm at 180mm?

Hello,

Received this lens today. 700mm seems sharp, though I have my doubts about 180 - it seems it's softer on the right, similar to the test shots on dpreview.

I wouldn't expect a fast lens at f2.8 to be sharp at the edges, though is this lens decentred slightly?

Your onion would be appreciated.

These are shot on an a7rii at 180mm, f2.8, Electronic front curtain off, on a tripod.

Tried different apertures, and, strangely, the field doesn't seem to improve much as it increases:

F/2.8

F/4.0

F/5.0

F/7.1

f2.8 - right is soft

f/8.0 - better, though right is still softer?
