Sigma 30mm 1.4 vs Nikkor 35mm 1.8

I've owned the Sigma for quite some time now and even though I've gotten some really good pics with it, at times I felt that something was off with the focus and sharpness.

Today I purchased the 35mm 1.8G and took a quick snapshot with my D300 to compare both. (f1.8 1/80 ISO 800 spot metering)

See the results below (focus on the Ok button)

Nikkor

I am somehow disappointed with the Sigma, do you think it is worth it to send it back to Sigma for calibration? Can this really be fixed? Has anyone done this before with success? Did Sigma charge you? How much?

Thanks to all in advance.
