Sony Planar 50mm f/1.4 ZA lens sharpness question.

Could anyone with fresh eyes confirm/deny that this sharpness is to be expected from this $1.4k thing?

I been spoiled by Distagon T* FE 35mm f/1.4 ZA before and honestly expected the same "sharpness punch" from Planar T* FE 50mm f/1.4 ZA lens.

This is 80MB uncompressed RAW shot from tripod at F/4, 1/400sec @ ISO-50 which is supposed to be the sweet spot:

Focus was manually set to "CHASE" building at the leftmost middle of the frame.
Bridge on the background was a bit softer than i expected.
