Unrealsitic expectations, or something else..


Attached below are two images, which are taken from a family holiday to Cornwall. I make no claims to their artistic or technical merits. Both are SOOC JPegs. I cannot remember which mode they were shot in, but as I was with family, walking both times, likely iA! (Maybe Aperture)

The first is one that I think is ok, in terms of  detail, and sharpness from my Panasonic G6 and 14-42 kit zoom lens (which I am sure is not the best lens available).

G6 + 14-42 f3.5 ISO200 1/60s

The second seems a little worse in terms of sharpness and clarity, especially towards the corners and edges.

G6 14-42 ISO 200 f4.2 1/60s

Am I expecting too much in detail viewed at 100% from the images, or am I doing something wrong, or is this a limitation of the camera/lens, or possibly all 3!

Any thoughts appreciated! Even if its I am at fault!
