From your last photo, it looks like that you are using the zoom focus with focus area set at 14x?  That's how I would try to do it, as well.  The only other thing that I would suggest is to see if the backlighting in your setup has any effect on the focus.

I had a similar problem with the 45mm f1.8 on an E-PM1.  I just couldn't get it to focus properly.  The focus confirmation light would come on but it would miss.  Part of the problem was that I wasn't using the zoom focus initially.  But after looking at the photo set, I thought that maybe the backlighting was effecting the CDAF with the 45mm.  I didn't have a lens hood on the 45mm at the time.  Unfortunately, I haven't had much time to try to trouble-shoot more.  If I had time I would try the same setup I had before and try the focus with backlighting on and off.  Maybe others may have some ideas.
