I have an issue with my 16-55 f2.8
when I take pictures with this lens, the parts that are out of focus tend to have this strange ghosting, as if the lens was dirty or something, this mostly happens when I focus something that is not to close, and when the lens is zoomed and wide open, also, images tend to look soft in some pictures, I have seen other pictures on the internet with this lens and those don't seem to have this problem.
I also have a 35 mm f2 and I dont have any issue with this lens, I shoot on an Xt3.
I have uploaded some pictures where I see this issue,
this one is unedited, the issue happens on the branch to the right
this one is edited, as you can see, it happens on the leaves below and right of the statue.
this one is edited too, on this one you can see it on the nearest plants.
I hope this helps understand my issue, any help would be appreciated.
