Re: FE SEL24-105 soft focus

I use the FE 24-105mm lens extensively on my A7R3 and find it reliably sharp even when viewing images at 100%. I subjected your image to Topaz Sharpen AI and found it could not achieve satisfactory sharpness, which indicates that motion blur is not the cause, so it is caused by general OOF.

Eye AF is very dependable on this camera so you may have settings that have not activated it during your shooting session.

I would recommend you watch this excellent video on focusing by Mark Galer, who is recognized as one of the foremost experts on using Sony cameras. The video centres on the A7R3 so is wholly relevant to your problem.

The video is Sony Alpha Focus Masterclass - YouTube and the section on Eye AF starts at 32 minutes.

Good luck!
