a6500 with ZA 24mm f1.8 creating lousy IQ

The form-factor of this camera is great. However coupled to this lens, the images I get are far surpassed by iPhone 7 hand-held pix.  I've tried everything to get good solid images...f8, 100DIN, tripod, soft late light, careful focusing, and yet I'm getting poor results.  On the attached image, the greens look good but the magenta -pink and the yellow are definitely screwy and not sharp.  This was processed very lightly in Camera Raw then saved as a JPEG.  Anyone else having issues with this "classic" Zeiss lens on the a6500?

Check out those little flowers. Think I have a bad build of this lens???
