I have just bought the 28--105 for my new D700 after reading glowing reports on several forums but I'm pretty disappointed with the lens my photos seem so soft and lack sharpness.

That's not my experience at all. I'd probably check for front- or back-focus and then AF fine-tune. My copy is sharp on my D700 and is a great little walk-around lens. It doesn't quite compete in image quality with a 24-70mm f/2.8, but it costs about a tenth as much and is much lighter.
