Did you try micro adjusting? It might just be out of focus rather than soft.

LiveView at 10x removes the issue of whether the MFA is off. That's generally the preferred way to obtain critical focus on a tripod with a static subject.

If you decide to keep the lens, you'll definitely want to do MFA on it. MagicLantern works really well on the 5d3, and has the capability of "Auto Dot Tune" for MFA.
