I think you might be having a depth of field issue. At 85mm wide open you're going to get a shallow depth of field. If you half press to lock focus or use back button focus any movement might end up throwing you a little bit out of focus before you press the shutter. Probably not to where it looks completely out of focus, but enough to make it look soft.

Have a look at this:

Good luck and happy shooting!
