Are you using continuous focus? If so, switch to single focus. Also, make sure the camera is set to "focus" not "release". It may help to select the focus point over the subject's face, rather than focus-recompose, or use face/eye detection (the latter is easier and quicker if you are photographing people)

Good advice.  The OP wants to insure AF-S and focus not release.  The best way would be to put the focus point over the subjects face instead of focus recompose.

However, I'm not sure the focus-recompose is the issue here.  I seriously doubt the lens is a flat field lens.  Secondly at the focal length and f-stop it would not matter anyway.  In realty I'm not sure that overall the entire image (especially the first on) is not soft throughout. The second one - one of the buttons seems to be in focus, however, even there it is a little soft.

Given this lens did not fair too well in some of the previous post - I would wonder about the lens.
