EOS R Photos lack clarity, are blurry and out of focus

Hello,

I've had the EOS R for a few months now and almost every single photo is slightly blurry or out of focus when zoomed in.  I was shooting with the Rebel SL2 for years before upgrading and never had this issue! I'm so used to my photos being crystal clear and extremely sharp but I don't get that same delivery on my EOS R. I've tried a variety of lenses, both RF & EF with the Canon adapter but I can't seem to get sharp, clear images the way I was able to on my older camera.  This is super stressful being that this camera was a huge investment for me. I've triple checked all of my settings and can't seem to figure out what I'm doing wrong. When I zoom in, they look almost pixelated along with slightly grainy and out of focus. Yes, my shutter speed is high enough haha! If you have any clue as to why my photos are coming out softened, I would greatly appreciate your help! I tried to attach an image as an example but I'm having trouble resizing it.

Perhaps if you can create a link in a file-sharing platform to show us the original file?  Without details and sample images it is hard to diagnose your issues and thus help you until we know more.

In the meantime, perhaps you can try the obvious, just to eliminate them.  Can you please check and advise your resolution settings in the first tab, page 1, option 1 of your menu system?


cheers, TREVOR

Hello! 
Here is a Google drive folder with some photo examples. The photo of the girl with long hair was on my SL2, the girl with short hair was taken on my EOS R.  I’ve included the RAW files, some screenshots, and the settings that were used for these photos. Thank you for your time! https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1-Ph1fWFtsdFAFpF4HjA-a3xN88jMEDV4

Thanks, I have downloaded the files.  Certainly, the CR3 file of the woman looks under-exposed and not in focus.  Can you please confirm if you were using manual or autofocus, and if the latter if you were using eye detection?  Also what firmware version is your camera set to?  The latest version is 1.8.0, which, if you don't have it is available at this link: HERE I have chosen the Australian site because it allows you to select your computer operating system, whereas the North American ones lock on to my computer's OS.

You were using different lenses. That just about throws out any ability to compare different IQ of the two cameras.

IMHO, the Tamron SP 35mm f/1.4 Di USD Lens is a whole lot better lens than the Canon 50mm f1.8 STM.
