Not that expensive...

Why on earth were you shooting at those ISO's when you did not need to? The quality loss due to that is noticeable.

As for the sharpness you do not need to view at 100% to see the issue. It is noticeable and means for some types of photography where the corners are important the lens is unusable as a lot of clients would reject the work or just not bother to use you in the future. If this lens had Sony written on the front and cheaper then it would be acceptable but not at this price or with Zeiss as a brand name on it.

Geez, come on. Have you compared prices? This sits in that mid range price-wise with the Canon 24-70 and it performs better.

So no, this ISN'T priced like a premium zoom. And if you start looking around, you'll wonder why the Canon 24-70 2.8 is going for another $1000. Yes, it's great, but you pay a lot for that and the performance is just acceptable in the corners.

Also, I've actually seen some great results in the corners for this lens, I'm thinking most people don't know A) How to shoot for sharp corners or B) have never owned a zoom. Otherwise, they would realize what to expect.
