Centre sharpness: Writing/Barcode (from a self-stick car tyre label) on shed wall, 50 feet from house. Point lens out of dining room window.

Edge sharpness: ditto

CA & focal plane curvature: distant tree branches (preferably bare of leaves)

FP curvature and edge/corner sharpness close up: stone or brick wall (sorry!)

MFD performance: Dandelion head (actually quite a stiff test).

For all my lenses I do a better test that takes a bit more time, which is to point the camera at a building in town that has lots of yellow bricks and chrome bars, and take pics at every aperture form wide open to f11, at every FL if zoom.
All of these can be compared with different lenses.

I am a semi-happy customer here. I don't like the vignetting wide open and even after applying correction in lightroom is not fully gone. Otherwise the lens is sharp and constrasty.

The review from lensretals is a good one to set expectations of this lens - https://www.lensrentals.com/blog/2018/02/mtf-tests-of-the-sony-fe-24-105mm-f4-oss/

It has been my most used lens recently on travels.
