Does anyone have problems of softness with the Olympus 14-150mm?

HI, I bought this lens 2 weeks ago from Craigslist and I think the results I am getting are very soft on my OMD, even compared to the 14-42 kit lens.  I also shoot with a Panasonic 20mm and the 14-150 is by far the softest, most blurry pictures I'm getting from any lens I've owned in any system.

The below pictures are an example of what I'm getting from the lens.  Please let me know your thoughts about what the problem might be.  Maybe a bad copy or just that the lens is soft since it's a long zoom and there are some compromises, I just think that it's borderline faulty lens!!!

Thank you
