I just got a brand new 24-105 for my A7R3 but I find the images are not nearly as sharp as I expected.

I am shooting people, primarily with the camera on a tripod, with OSS disabled on the lens. I've used various modes and the results are the same. I usually shoot at f8, ISO100 and 1/200s or 1/250s using the Godox AD200s to light my subjects.

This is really my first full frame lens for the A7R3. Prior to this I have used a Zeiss 16-70 f/4 lens exclusively and have not run into this problem.

Thanks for any suggestions you may have.


Show us some samples. I am not overly excited about the sharpness of that lens, but it definitely is not a soft lens... should be plenty sharp, unless you missed focus.

I stopped using it since I bought the Tamron 28-200.
