Simple, shoot in burst mode...

I had the same problem as you and when I started to shoot every capture in burst mode, about 5 frames per push of the shutter release, I was able to pick out the sharpest photo in post processing. Trying to just shoot one frame at a time and get a very sharp photo with locked on focus is demanding.

Read Nikon D4 interview floating around here and it is even discussed about what frame in burst mode does the focusing lock on, thus they are saying frame number one won't be in focus much of the time.

Digital shots don't cost any money as long as you have a large and fast memory card.
