E-PL1 + 14-150mm lens = out of focus subjects? Why?

I took these shots today in great lighting conditions and the camera saying it had a focus lock. I was shooting with shutter priority. Camera said there was focus lock. These pics would have been keepers had they turned out properly, and these aren't the only ones that were off focus. These are at a variety of shutter speeds. I seem to be having hit or miss issues with this camera and I'd like to know what I'm doing wrong. I think with the 14-150mm lens, over 125mm, I'm getting these problems. Am I doing something wrong? Should I try aperture priority instead in the future?
