Are these latest shots in Live view or phase detect?
If in phase detect, the 35G has a tendency to back focus.....
Have you tried a slower lens like a 2.8 or a 3.5? to see if this is ok?

If in phase detect, have you tried to shoot with AF fine (maybe -4 or -6)? Which Af sensor do you use? The center spot or another sensor?

If in Live view, which AF area mode are you using? Normal area, wide area, face priority?

was this shot with mirror lock up on a tripod?

The 35G is a sharp lens. It cannot be blurry like that.
