Where did you focus? To me it doesn't look very sharp, and I'm struggling to find the point of focus. I find that when I use face-tracking it usually focuses on the eyes, and the Zeiss 24-70 f4 is then more or less tack sharp at f5,6 and smaller as long as it's reasonably in the center of the image.

for portraits I am using face tracking AF. not sure what happened in this shot and why it is not sharp as the rest. maybe it is a shutter shock as the shutter speed went down to 1/60 which I did not notice.

viewing other shots @ 100% crop, they look sharper:

Thought he reduced clarity to create a softened appearence.

Yes, that definitely looks sharper. I have the A7, not the A7r, but sometimes find that the AF simply misses if you are not careful. In general AF is slower than I'd like, but very accurate, but sometimes it's a bit too slow...
