Your camera seams to be especially strange, as the corners are actually sharper, the small text of the clock in the bottom right corner for example is much easier to read then the text in the center right side, which is very unusual. Normally the corners are the softest, but as you use 16:9, which crops the extreme corners, there shouldnīt be much of a problem at all.
There is nothing to notice on the rest of the pictures.
I donīt really know whatīs going on there, the strange sharpness-pattern could be a result of the rather unusual distortion and the correction for it, but then left and right side should be identical. A misaligned lens/sensor should show worse corners (top right corner is quite good as well).
If the camera had some image-stabilization I would say, that maybe the moving sensor/lens-element moved to an area of the lens which isnīt optically as good, but as this camera doesnīt have any stabilization this isnīt possible.
One guess would be that there is some dirt on one side of your lens, or the covering-glass, or maybe some scratches.
Another guess would be that the camera chose one of the multi-shot-modes. Sonys cameras usually are quite good discovering softer parts of the image and multiple instances of the same objects their multi-shot-modes, but of course the algorithm isnīt fool-proof, so their might be a chance that software combined a softer image in the final picture on the right side, while not using this soft image on the left side.
oh that's a long one haha. but i seem to be able to understand now. thanks mate!!
