TZ40/ZS30; soft and noisy images

I bought a Panasonic TZ40 the other week, as I wanted a camera that was instantly pocketable. I've been experimenting with it, but have come away very underwhelmed! No matter how hard I try, photos seem soft and in many cases, unfathomably noisy!? I've played about with auto, prog and apt priority, but never get any 'wow' shots. I aim to for the lowest ISO 100-400, the largest aperture (f3.3) and the widest angle, yet still get noise and softness galore!?
