The first two shots look like they may be slightly unsharp due to diffraction. If you're looking for ultimate pixel-level sharpness, you probably don't want to above f/5.6 at 12mm. The third shot looks as though it's sharp where you indicate, but there simply isn't enough depth of field even at f/5.6 at 32mm for the depth of the scene.

Hmmm … you could be right about the first two. Thing is I had always assumed I was pretty safe from diffraction up to f/7.1. Clearly not.

Turning bright red as I write on that one.

Not sure about the third one though. Still doesn't look right to me.

Nevertheless, I asked what I was doing wrong, and I guess the answer is "unreasonable expectations'.
