This is really the best-case scenario for sharpness with the lens fully extended. It's a 100 percent crop from the inset image and although it's soft, it's usable. Shots come out of the camera at 300ppi for prints at 13x10. At that size it's easy to see how soft and smeary her hat and hair look, but it otherwise holds up. Enlarging or cropping and printing at that size is probably not a good idea. But at small sizes, the photos are fine.
