GX1 softness ???


I have a GX1+12-42PZ lens, overall performance of this combination is quite soft focus, I find a lot of customers having blurr issue with this lens and decided to buy another zoom and a primer...But testing another 12-42 PZ, G VARIO 14-42 and even a G 20mm f/1.7 still have filling of softness. Finally, I tried my lenz on another GX1 body and GH3. GX1 produced similar/bit better result as my body, GH3 mechanical and electronic shutter both perform much better.

I desperately need an advise: does my camera is a bad copy or I just have too big expectations from this system?
Here are some tests and sample photos, can anybody give me his opinion?

Same PZ lens on GX1 and GH3

Common blurr issue

Some photos look OK

But mostly are soft for me
