#4 is kind of odd that the middle won't be sharp. However, judging from your point #3, have you AF-fine tuned your lens?

Point 3 is AF sometimes focuses in front.

Fine tune can only help with minor and always mis-focus in the same direction - not sometimes.

Mis focus is often though not always caused by the AF system not being able to focus accurately on what is underneath the selected AF point.

Yes, BUT why not eliminate other possibilities as well?  And you would start with a known firm base for anything going forward.  We know that part of the issue is not being able to lock on to the target due to the lack of contrast but why not verify that the shots that do lock on are as focused as possible?
