No, I don't think so. The focus on these does sure look off - and patchy. Sweet spots - a vagary at best - notwithstanding, that should not be happening at your f/7~8 aperture.

I don't have the camera, but others here can weigh in with advice. I suspect it's crook.


Here's just a quick example I found of a 50mm lens comparison re: edge clarity performance w/aperture. (Skip to 10:25) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H_lpIwauRPI
