I have read, but cannot verify, that this may be a symptom that the camera is out of tune.

Is a body produces out of focus images in the same direction with every lens used on it, it is likely the body is out of calibration.

Digressing Nikon say in all fine tune camera instruction books using fine tune is not normally required.

It seems logical to presume fine tune is unlikely to be a solution when using a type of target Nikon say may cause poor focus accuracy. The Nikon guidance when getting unsharp focus with some types of target is to either find a better autofocus target or switch to manual focus.

Many problems turn out to be a lack of intimate knowledge of complex modern camera equipment.
