24-200 Z sharpness?

I recently bought a 24-200Z and a 500mm PF because I'm planning to travel more in the future and I want to have a light kit. The 500 is amazing but I was really surprised to see the 24-200 below expectations. Many reviews say that it's just a bit less sharp than a 24-70F4 , others even that is impossible to distinguish the results between the two lenses.

Mine is totally lacking of resolution from 24 to 40mm on both side of the photo like the 10/15% on the left and the right. Much worse on the left. I wonder if I should ask for a refund and forget about supertele or get it exchanged from the vendor. If you have one what is your experience with it?
