wow that is pin sharp. at 100% crop, Is this degree of sharpness reasonably consistant on average ?

Absolutely, yes.

I have heard a lot of good things about the sharpness of this lens. Pity it lacks the extra reach!!!

Well, this is true and the one thing you must keep in mind is that this is a relatively small lens - a stop smaller than the 100-400L, 300/4L IS or 400/5.6L. If you need a better lens, look no further. But if you need a bigger lens, it will have to be one of the others.
