Maybe it is a bad lens?

Based on the focal length and f-stop, I think they are using an 70-200 f/2.8 (not sure about IS). But if so it would be the worst copy I've ever seen shots from. Looking at the bike and girl by a fence photos, there is nothing sharp in what should be the DOF range. The photos don't look miss focused either, since they are "clearest" at the point of the subject. And they don't look like camera shake is a factor, though some are taken at 200mm at a distance that must be at least 60ft.

I'm at a lost to really explain why they look they way they do or that they were even posted.
