focus//sharpness

very first shots with new tamron 28-75. the portrait was taken by the camera store salesman. i have always felt that this shot was sharp, vibrant and crisp. that is until i zoomed to 100%. the autofocus point is right on the face. there seems to be lots of detail and that impressed me with this lens

the autofocus point on man from side is on the top of his head. again at 100% the shot is not sharp.

if something is not sharp at 100%, does it then fail the sharpness test.

i know that sounds like a duh!!!!!! kind of question but at regular view, all 3 shots looked in focus to me.
