Actually the problem is so simple it is amazing. the first one is not
too bad but the aperture is REALLY low at 4. That is not for a photo
with this much stuff all around. If I wanted clarity I would bump the
ISO up to the 7 range.

Shooting at F4 on this camera is like shooting at F16 on a FF cam. That's pretty much going to make everything pretty sharp. It's not like he's close to anything, it's all fairly far away.

The second photo has two problems. First is the same low aperture
issue. The 3 range is definitely too low for this photo. Couple that
with the barrel distortion at maximum wide angle and you have what
looks like poor focus.

The lense looks a little blurry at the edges in both photos. I think he's got one of those S100fs cams with poor clarity. Plus, he's got a lot of shadows, and he's seeing some fairly typical NR artifacts at the edges.
