choosing some other object to focus is a trick i do with every camera i have, even when i used to shot film...!

Are you using single area focus mode? Have you tried the "Small AutoFocus Frame Size? for low contrast shots" Don't know if it will work, but it's worth a try.

I'd also turn DR correction off if you have it enabled to see if focus improves.

Would love to see a photo example or two, with EXIF data.
