Only ones that matter

These are the only shots that matter as MLU and Remote release isolates any factors such as Mirror slap and fat finger. Not sure how you manual focused. Did you use the green focus indicator in the viewfinder, Liveview, or just eyeball it?

Not sure how big the crop but from these you need a tiny amount of AF-Fine tune for the lens and nothing else.You really shouldn't have any problem getting sharp photos if you set the AF fine tune up on that lens.

Being crops, all the EXIF data and camera settings data is missing so I can't tell anything else. If DSC_6008 is straight out of camera, and has not been edited in any way, you can upload that to your gallery and I can check all the other settings that may have affected the shot.  Good Luck.
