sample of sharpness:

the 5d was said to have had a very weak AA filter and it has large photosites so it probably would look sharpest of all when viewing a RAW, but the 5dmkii is not the slightest bit towards anything you could remotely call soft, if you get mush, something is wrong. Try contrast AF and some 10x zoom LV AF and see what happens. Maybe it is bad calibration.

example, 100% crop, taken with a zoom lens handheld no less, it has been sharpened from RAW:
