Is my LX7 back focusing?

I was playing with my new LX7 this afternoon & was noticing I wasn't seeing critical sharpness in some of my pics, especially close ups, so I set up this simple test to check for focus accuracy(click on view original size)LX7 first followed by LX5 both set to f2, cropped to show detail....

LX7 small centrer AF point set on center X

LX5 small center AF point set on center X

This looks like back focus to me, which would explain the lack of sharpness in some of my pics. Also looks pretty soft for f2 at least compared to my LX5(f1.4 is very soft on my LX7).

Does this look like my LX7 is back focusing to anyone else?
