Sony A7 dubious image quality - ISO800 Jpeg OOC

Hello everyone,
I am doing my research about A7 as I am planning to change systems completely, from Canon EOS 5dII to Sony A7. I am after a fast standard prime for starters, so thought why not go for a voigtlander 40/1.4 Nokton. I've read so much praising about the image quality and having seen the samples I believed it. Now, time came for me to test this myself... and here is the hiccup. Although the bokeh looked lovely etc. the crop image shows that the skin and details is lost and this is only ISO800 f/1.4. I try to avoid pixel-peeing but the image quality from a full-frame camera at ISO800 should definitely be better, shouldn't it? My 5dII beats the sony hands down here.
Or maybe i did something wrong? I also heard about the so-called posterisation effect of the images from Sony A7. What do you think guys?
thanks for all suggestions.
here are the images
