SIr,
If you use a too-light or poor quality tripod, QR, or do not bolt it all together securely?  Yes it IS user error.
I also wonder if increasing lens sharpness makes visible that which was not before.  Anyway, show me one of mine (as I KNOW the test conditions) where this is visible.  I described my methodology in the OP, and for hand-held snaps I judge the sharpness to be completely acceptable.  
If I get weekend time off from other activities, including shooting for fun and profit, maybe calibrating my pano head for some of the new lenses, etc. I might attach the 75 and tripod mount it as some suggest and look for < 2 pixels total blur in the shots.  
I'm playing with the new firmware now, interesting to see if it affects me.
