Are these sharp enough?

Occasionally I get a comment from a photo friend who has far more and far more expensive gear than I have that states  "nice color and composition and pretty sharp".

I, personally think tack sharpness is far overrated and relates to the equipment much more than the photographer's abilities.   The 4 photos below are examples of what my FZ300 can produce (minimal PP as I don't have much desire to sit by the computer more than I currently do).

The images are quite good (IMHO) and have been praised on a couple of boards here and by many who have viewed them elsewhere.  Could they be sharper?  Sure, if I had more expensive equipment.  But I don't want to carry around more weight or play around with multiple lenses just to get a little more sharpness with no improvement in composition.

I would appreciate your views.
