Really, two things. First - when there's a fairly simple camera shake, the "Reduce shake" filter in Photoshop CC is amazing - you just need to really set it carefully.

Then I used a "step sharpening" technique when you apply a sharpen filter, resize down to around 70%, sharpen again... and repeat multiple times. Each time the depth and % of the sharpening is decreased.

The bottom line is that when you sharpen and downsample the A7r images to be in the 18-21MP range - they are insanely detailed - even if you see blur/shake at 36MP - peeping at 100%.

You can make a huge print from that TR file and nobody would ever know the difference.

From time to time, I point my camera at the right things. This is generally when I forget everything I've learned.
