Pentax DA15 softer than it should be?

The DA15 has been in my bag for quite some years now, but lately it just doesn't feel sharp enough. Now I know this isn't the sharpest lens, especially not in the corners. But I was wondering what other DA15 users think of the samples in the link below. Even the center feels like it could be sharper and sometimes the corners are downright muddy, even at F/11.

Though a lot can be fixed in lightroom, I'm wondering if it makes sense to look for a sharper copy, or if my expectations of sharpness have somehow increased over the years.

The samples are not the best photos, but do best illustrate the point I'm debating.
