Most of these photos are not focused the way a portrait photographer would focus them - straight on the closest eye.

On this one the teeth and glasses are most in focus. And the lighting on the venue seems to have been pretty bad (only from top giving bright foreheads and dark eyes).

The lighting could have been compensated by exposing for the eyes maybe +1.5 stops on this photo (uppinf the ISO to 640), but blowing the highlights at the same time...

Why do I feel that these images are not as sharp as expected them to be?

Ha, Ha, m4/3 haters sarcastic comments, sorry to tell you this, but these pictures taken with this new Panasonic lens are sharp (very) and blow most of your beloved old-fashioned heavy brick DSLRs pictures out of the water, m4/3 is the way of the future for photography accept it!!!!

Bit Off-topic, but that was also said for the Compact Disc. Some people still prefer records, and they even still buy them!

I don’t think that MFT has a great future, you could get many bodies with APSC-sized sensors that all in all are not bigger than the MFT ones, but the images have more of a photographic feel to them, especially if you want to photograph landscape, urban scenes, etc. If you just want to photograph single objects, macro and the like, then maybe MFT isn’t that bad, or if you really need the biggest tele one can get, then MFT’s crop would be just right, otherwise bigger sensors will always be better. (I have an Olympus E-P2 with PanaLeica DG Summilux 25/1.4, like it very much, but it’s use cases are limited, and that’s not only because of the rather low 12.3 MP, it delivers).
