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

because it was incredibly dark for most of Friday lunchtime and I believe auto-iso to be the work of the devil?

Not every shot that uses non optimal settings needs to be discarded...

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.

Would you like me to dig out some shots with my nikon 24-70 that demonstrate it has softer corners at certain focal lengths and apertures?

But wait, it's not badged Zeiss, so it gets a free pass on criticism. Not to mention it's price tag...
