I'm curious about this. With a 1/400 shutter speed, stabilization in the lens, and F8, you should be getting a really sharp picture with any camera.

Stabilization in the lens does not equal sharpness or fine detail.  It's probably the first thing you'd want to get rid of.

I say try the camera 1. On a tripod, and 2. With a "real" lens, that is, a known high detail sharpness lens.

If you live nearby, you could come over and test it with any of my Zeiss primes: 21/25/28/35/50/100, or my Nikon 14-24 zoom or 55 Micro-Nikkor and assorted other Nikon prime lenses.
