Really frustrated with my SD10 50mm f1.4 combo

I've just got back from a day trip to Legoland. I thought I'd blow the dust of my SD10 and took just the 50mm f1.4 lens with me.

I've not really used this lens too much since I bought it. One of the reasons is that I've never been over happy with the focus on it. So many of my shots have missed focus. I would say 60-70% of the 80-odd I shot today are not sharp. It was an overcast day, so my aperture never got much above f3-4, but I tried to make sure my shutter never dropped below about 1/60th.

I guess I need to do some proper tests with this lens.

I am trying to upload a file for somebody to look at.

Anyone else have issues with this lens? Is it the lens or is it the SD10? I am really trying to fall back in love with my Sigma gear, but things like these make me loose faith...again.
Kind Regards,
