I know this isn't a brick wall but the protruding boards are all level so ignore the boards further back.

Image #1 the camera was focused with live view on the center right protruding board.

Image #2 the camera was focused with live view in the upper right corner of the frame. As you can see it is much sharper.

And in image 2 the centre is less sharp than image 1.

If this is field curvature, as opposed to fence curvature, it doesn't seem all that severe. I don't know if you can expect significantly better from a different lens in the same price range.

What are you shooting that this much field curvature is a problem, other than tests that give you a reason to be dissatisfied?

trains, locomotive is fairly close and the hills/landscape in the background is oof in the corners. Look at the thread's first post's second image, the hills are mush in the corners.
