Well what you miss here and I guess everyone does so far is that these pictures where taken with a 24-105mm f4.0 L which per se isn't the best lens for portrait work and is known to have issues in mid and outer parts of the image.
Secondly you can clearly see that the focus pane was not on the face when you look at the tissue of the dress.
Third it does not say if the lens was in tripod mode (IS off) or shot handheld (IS on or off). In at least two cases (if shot handheld no matter if IS was used or not) at 1/125sec the image could look like this and the issue would be in no way related to the camera...
To really evaluate the cams performance in regards of sharpness an image taken with a 70-200 f2.8 IS II or 300mm f2.8 IS II at a value 1/1600 sec would be far more interesting.
Just my 2 cents ...
