Try opening the lens up some, try shooting at F8 instead of F16, if I have good light, I just set it to F8 or F11 and go for it, it is plenty sharp at F8, and you'll get faster shutter speeds that way too.. The kit lens is NOT a good choice in low light, especially at the long end.
I will try that..

I checked it, and seems like most of your shots in good light weren't bad at all. The roses seemed a little soft, but they looked to be in some shade, or maybe it was in the evening, and there wasn't much light.
haha.. the roses were taken in the middle of the afternoon. I had to adjust the brightness to get the petal to be more defined. It was just a bad shot perhapse.

This was hand held the day I got it and the k200d. The fly is very small and if you look at the background you can see an out of focus blade of grass.
