RX-1 off-focus!! (or are my eyes blurry)

I finally got my RX-1 yesterday, and then took a bunch of photos of my kids moving around the house and found that even with speeds of 1/250, the shots that were sharp were only where the subject was still. Overall I love the pics, but am troubled by the AF (not just speed, but accuracy mostly)

I went to Best Buy today to compare the AF with the D600, since it was on sale and a friend wanted to buy it.

We shot 20+ shots with the RX-1 of the salesman and my friend, and I am sharing the sharpest onces I could gather out of the lot (the rest are not sharp at all!)

So with that background, HERE'S MY Question- Is my RX-1 off-focus or something, because my eyes still don't find these shots that tack sharp. I can upload the RAW files if you guys want to see those as well.

You guys are way smarter than I am about these things, so please advise, since I am bummed about the purchase because I am not seeing that lens being tack sharp for me.
