One thing I'm continuously puzzled by in your posts is the reference to focusing at f/1.4. As far as I am aware the cameras always focus "wide open" no matter what your chosen aperture.

The O/P only means that the misfocusing is readily visible at f1.4, and less so with images taken at smaller apertures due to less shallow DOF (which is also what you wanted to state).
