500D - Inconsistent Sharpness

Hi All,

I'm using 500D with 24-105L Lens and have been having getting only 5-6 sharp pictures out of 10.

The ratio becomes worse when I shoot in Auto. It gets better when I control the shutter speed myself but even at 1/200 I still get too many blur pictures.

I'm completely loss as first I thought the lens is not sharp but when the images are sharp it's very sharp so it can't be the lens. Can it be the focus, can it camera shake? Can camera shake happens even at 1/200?

Please help suggest something I can try, thanks very much.
