Try shooting at the same focal length, but manually focus this time and see how it turns out. Barring that, I would say wait until your new lenses arrive and repeat the same shot with the different lenses. If they're all still blurry, it could be something wrong with the camera itself.
Sorry, it always suck when you get a new toy and something isn't right with it.
Hmm... I'll give it a try, but the camera did shoot nicely when I took a picture of the P100 and the logitech mouse next to it was taken at 1/60 of a sec, f/4.5 and 29mm focal range.
And it does suck... badly. What luck...
I'll post a photo full zoomed in in a few.
Okay, I took the photos.
The first one is fully zoomed in, as you requested, I used manual focus on this one, only using the viewfinder.
The second one, is at shortest focus range, manually focused using live view because using the viewfinder was hard due to the position I was in, and the lack of place to focus on at so short "FR" (Now I know how a camera feels when it can't lock the focus lol
). It came out ALOT better than the original, but still a bit soft, maybe now is how you told before, zooming lens have a softer focus on larger angles.
