There is nothing wrong with the lens that I can see. A little bit of tweaking and sharpening and it looks OK to me. Not the best shots to judge sharpness though.

Thanks for your opinion. May I ask you what kind of shot would you prefer to judge the sharpness?

I reviewed your images and I can assure you that your lens and your camera are fine. What is out of focus is due to depth of field, which is normal.

If you keep on closing the aperture, you will get more depth of field, but you will start losing sharpness. Being in focus and being sharp are different things.

An APS-C camera can only resolve so much, and you are getting as much as you can from the lens and camera.
