Never mind then.  

I haven't tried on such a difficult focus target.  I have used a tape measure and it hits the numbers under the focus square, but the tape measure has much more contrast than grain on wood.

What is clear to me is that it's not a front/back focus lens issue... I do think I am going to send my camera in just to have them check it out. I realize this may be a challenging target, but there is no reason IMO to be getting as many OOF/misfocused  shots using single point as I have been with the portrait examples. It' just not acceptable for this level of camera...
