A7S3 doesn't focus on selfies, anybody noticed?

Last week I took my new A7S3 out for a spin around town and wanted to make some nice selfies. Thats where the flippy screen comes in to play isn't it?

So I grabbed the camera by the lens with my right hand - selftimer 2 sec mode - and pushed the trigger with my right hand, point the camera at my wife and me and faithfully awaiten the click... just to see the shot was totally unsharp!

No matter what focus setting... the camera freezes focus after the trigger is pushed and does not want to refocus during the count down making is useless to make selfies this way. What to do?
