I attempted to edit my last post having seen your last comments but ran out of time 

In your example the manual focus is indeed better but we are seeing a crop not the whole frame which may reveal why the camera chose a different focus point ?

I suppose that when judging optimal focus the motors may delay in shutting off sufficiently to allow an overshoot but when there is some doubt usually the lens hunts back & forth before finally settling on a focus point although this tendency varies between different lenses.

This is definitely an area where DMF comes into its own.

PS - I assume that when using the tripod OSS is switched off ?
