Very disappointed with my 18-55
2

I recently got this lens after reading good things about it, people said it's pretty much the best kit lens ever made etc. I was aware of the quality variation with these but I thought that stopping down would mitigate the issues which is fine to me because I intended to use this lens only when there is plenty of light outside. I looked at the MTF charts by some sites and f/5.6 should give the best results, but I'm still seeing this terrible kit-lens haloing wormy quality I last saw with my abysmal Canon EF-M kit lens many years ago. My copy is made in Philippines by the way.

Here is an example photo. Shot at f/5.6 and still looks horrible, Lightroom enhance details did not help at all so it isn't the fault of the X-trans conversion. Is my copy just that bad or is this normal?
