80-200 Focus Issue - Suggestions?

Have discovered that my 80-200 is not focussing correctly with my D7100. See the pictures below.

Focus point is on butterfly but flower before it is in focus. Argument, its not quite on the butterfly. 80-200 @200 f 4.5.

Focus point is behind butterfly in focus., perhaps on leaf. 80-200 @200 f3.2

Question should I try to correct with fine tune or send in for repair. Or is it technique? Not sure what I could be doing to create this situation. Am also going to try the lens with my D90 to see where focus lands. Thanks in advance.
