Not getting even field of focus after some more test shots. Any suggestions?

I use Sigma 10-20mm on Nikon D90 and CV Heliar 15mm f4.5 on NEX-5N. I like the Sony combo MUCH more. Significantly sharper and more contrasty (especially in the corners), less distortion, better color, easy to handle. About the same amount of vignetting as Sigma, no purple shift. Just set at f5.6 or 8 and hyperfocal distance, then point-and-shoot. Not to mention the form factor. Sigma is pretty large and heavy, CV is tiny and looks like made for NEX.
