    There could be a whole lot of reasons. Off hand, it could be due to your hand shake(if you are not using a tripod). The will be accentuated especially when you are using a longer focal length.

    Then you need to activate the compact's macro (flower icon) mode for closeups. Try it or post a pic here.

    I agree with Kit. There could many reasons to this.

    But I believe this is a common issue present in almost all pns cameras? Optical zooms in pns are not like dslr zoom lenses.

    Maybe, just maybe, the optical zoom is mixed with digital zoom. Or the lens construction is poor and using the cheaper glass.
    The best things in life are free.

    I suspect you have went into more than just optical zoom and into digital zoom.

    or maybe the shutter went really low?
    maybe you could post some pics together with the specs?
