does not look like a good shot... so it is either your or lens at fault


I forgot to mention that a good test result demands the camera/lens/sensor to be exactly perpendicular to the target. As you posted the crops I just assumed the OP had checked this. I still think that is the case but it should be mentioned.


It also might not be a bad idea to do another round of pics with focus points selected for each corner and center. If the selected focus points are sharp, then the lens may be decentered or perhaps the camera is not perpindicular to the target.
