RX-1 Backfocus issue

This is my week 3 with my RX-1. I like everything, except the focus problems I am seeing.

I started a thread earlier here and several folks suggested using Flexible spot instead of center+recompose, but despite that, I am still seeing the issue.

I thought it must've been just my camera, and called Sony for an exchange, till I read that other folks have started reporting it as well.

See the kid's portait here- http://www.ronmartblog.com/2012/12/review-sony-dsc-rx1-full-frame-compact.html

Also, a friend just sent me this link:

http://diglloyd.com/blog/2012/20121221_2-SonyRX1-focus-accuracy-backfocus.html

Has anyone read the Diglloyd report on this? I've never used this site before and its a paid $49 access, so wondering if its worth it.

I love the camera, but if this issue remains, then I'll have to return it next week

If any of you are familiar with this issue, please throw some light and help.
