Test with another lens. I love, love, love the 28/1.8G, but in my ongoing testing with mine, I definitely have found it has some very "interesting" focus shift and field curvature behavior that is going to pose some issues for some scenes, and thus, it would be about the last lens I'd want to use to do AF sensor tests. Try something like the 85/1.8G or a 50/1.8G for such tests.

Happy to hear you love your 28mm f/1.8 since I also have one coming tomorrow.
