DOF too shallow - f/2.8 or smaller needed

At 45mm, a head & shoulders shot needs f/2.8 to keep both eyes sharp, sometimes f/4 depending on angle. As others have said, there is some sharp hair, so it is a missed focus issue imho. Your lens may still have issues, but this photos shows that it is sharp at the in-focus plane.

Here are some shots with the OM 50/1.8 taken at f/2.8 - even here, both eyes are not evenly sharp, but there is more DOF.
