40mm f/2 - Is my copy normal?

Seems like it's overly soft at f/2 and f/2.8. Other photo samples I've seen don't seem to be this soft. Looks great at f/4 and more closed, but I know it's supposed to be usable wide open.
Trying to get feedback on if this looks normal or of I'm just overly spoiled by the 50mm f/1.2S being ridiculously sharp.

f/2

f/2.8

f/4

f/5.6

f/8

Especially interested in feedback from other owners on if this looks normal to you or possibly a bad copy.

Thanks!
