Sony FE 35mm 1.4 - Image Noise Normal?

Hello, Just got this lens and looking at some shots both in low light and daylight - the image seems to exhibit a lot of noise and softness than I remember having w/ my 35mm 2.8. Or my 85 1.8 or 55 1.8... I'm posting to see if maybe this lens has a problem, as I've heard that this lens should blow my 2.8 away (though I love that lens)... I'm shooting wide open at 1.4 but also at f4 & f8, etc. I'm using handheld and a tripod.. Could be I'm zooming in to much to compare it to the 55 and 85?? Dont know why but I dont remember the 2.8 looking this way. If it's not the lens, could there be a problem w/ the camera? when zoomed out it looks ok, but when I zoom in, just doesn't have the crispness I feel it should. (slow shutter speeds were on a tripod)

the tree image not zoomed in - I'm zooming into the right tree trunk.

this is the full size image from the last one so you can see how zoomed in I am to the middle "LSG Sky Chefs" text
