Hi Harry, welcome to the forums.
What sort of shutter speed are you shooting with? The 40-150mm is pretty sharp generally speaking, or at least my one was. As a general rule of thumb you need to keep the shutter speed above the reciprocal of the focal length (ie at 150mm you need a shutter speed of 1/150 or faster). If this isn't enough try the reciprocal of the 35mm equivalent focal length (ie at 150mm use at least 1/300).
Having said that, if you're using a tripod and a self timer so that you don't have to touch the camera it should be pretty stable and you shouldn't get any movement. What camera settings are you using?
If you can post an example image, that would help.
