I had this 85 1.8G previously and it is indeed sharp. From the image you posted I believe yours is front focused. The lens does display LoCA in OOF areas at wider apertures which further suggests that it is in this case misfocused. I suspect that you may need to change your AF fine tuning.

You can verify lens performance by focusing liveview.
