[UPDATE] This bug has been FIXED since SONY's November 2017 firmware update (47.1.A.5.51).
RGBC-IR and ToF sensors seem to get some bugs after 8.0 update (47.1.A.3.254) on XZ Premium. Can NOT fix it with Xperia Companion. According to users' replies, it seems that only the G8142 model with dual SIM got affected. The G8141 model with single SIM are fine. Please fix it soon.

You may have noticed that the camera on your Xperia XZ Premium Dual SIM doesn't behave according to specifications after the update to Android 8.0 (software build 47.1.A.3.254).
This is due to a software configuration related to the RGBC-IR and ToF sensors used by the camera. When these sensors don't work correctly, pictures taken under specific lighting/colour conditions will be affected. Results include slower auto focus and effects on colour rendition.
This has been solved in an updated software version that is scheduled for release in November, 2017. However, please note that Software updates are released at different times depending on the operator, market, region or country. Therefore, I am not able to give you an exact date for when a specific update will be available for your device. In addition, network operators and specific markets may choose not to use the updates for specific models.

My firmware version is 47.1.A.3.254-R2B - Customized VN. Saw it when reflash by Software repair of Xperia Companion.
My friends who own an XZ premium got the same problem as me. I think this happen because 8.0 software update not fully optimized. Beside lacking of ToF sensor (Laser focus) making 3D Creator app not focus properly. Leaving object blurry.
Hope they will fix this soon in next patch.

I can't confirm that this happens for all Oreo users.
For me the sensors are working fine.
Updated OTA this morning
Model is G8141 (single SIM)
Only thing I did after the update was clearing the cache.
Hold volume up + power button until the phone turns off.
Keep holding until the phone vibrates 3 times shortly.
Then release and restart the phone. Not sure if this has
anything to do with it, but that's actually the only thing
I did after the update. But I didn't check the sensors before that.

to people who experience this issue, is your XZP single or dual SIM variant?
