Simple test

Set the camera on a tripod, lens wide open. Manually focus (using live view) on a stationary, contrasty, detailed subject. Take the shot using self timer.
Defocus the lens and repeat the process using autofocus.

Compare the results. If the autofocused shot is softer (especially front focused) then your camera or lens needs adjustment. Microfocus adjustment is easy. Try it.
