are you expecting too much from your kit? Did you try any of the options given in the other thread? Have you had anyone that knows what they are talking about look at your shots and compare them to known good setups?
How do you define 'pin sharp'?
How do your shots compare to other shots with the same equipment & same settings? Could you have found someone with the same lens & tried it on your camera, either someone you know or a friendly shop?
I don't think any lens is what I'd call 'pin sharp' straight out of the camera, that's the nature of digital imaging, most images look better when they are sharpened to some degree or another in software.
You may have had a dodgy lens, you may have a dodgy camera, or you may be using it incorrectly, but I'd want to be convinced that it was dodgy and that it wasn't the way I was using it before ditching what most people find is a perfectly good lens.
If you want another lens recommendation then a Canon 24-105 F4 L
