My main issue is though, a picture that looks sharp to me often doesn't look sharp to other people on forums, it may be due to either my poor eyesight or lack of experience in finding flaws though.

Those do not look sharp.

Do you have a filter on the lens? If so, take it off.

It possible the softness is in the lens. It's possible you have a focus issue. That camera has live view, right? Try manual focus with live view. Try f/5.6 and f/8 as well.

This is slightly worrying :/

I do not have a filter attached, and I am using the 18-140 kit lens. Sort of hard to know if it's a technical issue or just me being new to this that causes the unsharpness...

Looking at the data for this lens, it appears that the sharpest settings are towards the wider zoom settings at about f/5.6 or so. It isn’t particularly sharp at f/11.

So there isn't necesarily an issue with either my lens or camera? I am starting to get slightly worried now.. :/ If it's simply the lens having it's limits, I can live with that, I planned to buy a new and better lens next year anyways. If there is a technical issue it is a bigger problem though...
