Have you tried taking a shot in live view and comparing it with a shot taken through the viewfinder? Maybe you need to do an AF adjustment on the lens.

I tried it on my Pentax K01 using manual focus with focus peaking and got the same results

OK, so that eliminates phase AF errors, good.

If you shot at faster speed (say 1/80 just to be sure you eliminate motion) and it's as bad, well, as you said, it's terrible:

Send it back.
