Generally lenses are sharpest at f/8
Try a tripod? It makes a big difference.
Use a tripod and take a photograph of black lines on white paper. Enlarge. If still soft at f/8 then I think you might have a bum lens. If so you can try having it recalibrated ($) or get a new lens. Hope you are using a lens from a reputable company. I am hesitant to recommend lenses from companies that are not well known. I'd stick to major manufacturers. I really doubt it is the body unless you have a real problem with the sensor.

Make sure the image stabilization is ON when you use a telephoto lens handheld. Or else use a tripod and turn the IS off.
