Help a novice: sharp or unsharp images? Should I return my X-T30?

Re: Lens testing

The photo of the ivy bush looks reasonable, this photo has a definite subject for the camera to focus on.

Otherwise, parts closest and farthest away from the camera are blurry and it's sharp someplace in the middle. That's a normal effect due to the depth of field.  DOF may not be obvious in small sensor smartphones but it can become very obvious in cameras with a large sensor like your X-T30.

It also seems to be a hazy or foggy day which also contributes to making far away things look blurry.
