Tamron 24-70 G2 help.

I recently purchased a used Tamron 24-70 G2 and at 70MM it's way off. If I dial in +19 it's super sharp and perfect. 50mm is the same as well. I have read other's using the tap in console and adjusting it by length. I purchased this camera from an online photography store that has a good reputation according to eBay. Just don't if a setting this high means it's defective. I also tried to use Steve's target to calibrate and I always get fine-tune failed. My other lenses work fine to fine-tune

Quick update

Not sure if this helps or not. I had the +19 for AF Fine-tune but when I took a picture of a faraway object (I'm at 70mm) like a cement pole it now back focuses badly. If I then dial in a 0 it is sharp. But when I'm at 70MM and focus close it needs the +19 to be sharp. It seems to me like someone has settings previously that have been used with the Tap in console. What do you guys think?
