G7X Taking grainy photos

Hi all,


I have a G7X that recently seems to have been struggling with taking good, focused photos. It is especially prominent in landscape shots - there seems to be quite a bit of "fuzz" in the details that wasn't there when the camera was new(er). The issue occurs in all lighting, though of course it's much worse in low light.


Is this a common problem, or even fixable? Can anyone point me in the right direction for steps I should be taking to diagnose the issue or repair it?




[I was not able to upload an example of a raw unedited image here because the file size is too large, so it is located at this imgur link:]
