I must say that several of the images don’t look particularly sharp. However a dose of Topaz Sharpen A1 would probably work wonders. Many of course were taken under low light conditions and exhibit noise.

If you want to consider tests of the lens there is none more apposite than this one:

Sony FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM ( SEL1635GM ) - Review / Test Report (opticallimits.com).

Unfortunately the test images are not all that useful despite being of huge size. They are basically of natural scenes and one has no idea where the point of focus was located. It's a pity that no cityscape or architectural shots were included.
