Why my 14-24mm f/2.8G not sharp?

I've just bought a used Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8G ED AF-S lens which is said to be a razor sharp lens. But I've found it very disappointing in terms of sharpness. At 24mm, it is most obviously not as sharp as my cheap kit lens Nikon 24-120mm. I wonder if it's because I'm not making a fair comparison or this is just a bad copy of Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8G? I'll have to decide if I'll return it back soon. Many thanks in advance for all your thoughts.
