Disappointing images with 7d or just expecting too much?


I bought a used (but still warrantied) Canon 7d with a 15-85mm lens. I was initially disappointed with seemingly soft images and tried a freinds 24-105mm L lens which seemed to produce better images than the 15-85mm. I purchased a 24-105mm and things seemed better. I'd already arranged for the camera to go to Canon to be checked over at this point and they replaced the focus box and motor etc. Trouble is i still think the images are soft? Please have a look at the attached three images shot recently in good light with hi shutter speeds and apertures etc. Do these look soft or am i being picky?

Please note these are exported from Photoshop as "high" and therefore are not "full" res as these files would be 17mb and to big to upload onto the site. They are approx 6mb but should give you a good idea.
