SAMYANG RF 85mm f/1.4 - Soft at 1.4 - 2.5 (Canon R6)

Hello,

After reading all the great reviews on the Samyang RF 85mm f/1.4 I was really interested to check it out since I love the focal length. I finally found a copy on MPB and bought it. My initial test showed some softness but I thought it was just me. I kept shooting and eventually did some sharpness tests at different apertures. It turns out it actually is soft at 1.4 - 2.5. Right at 2.8 it becomes tack sharp again, but that's obviously not the point of owning a f/1.4 lens.

A friend of mine had some issues similar to this after he dropped one of his lenses. Wondering if that's what has happened here or if it's just a bad copy.

Has anybody else experienced this?
