I think in shot #3 what you are interpreting as OOF is actually just very low contrast.

Well, I didn't say it was OOF, just soft. Low contrast? Sure.

well judging from those pics, you do not have a focus problem
like i mentioned you are not suppose to stop down the lens, and if you look closely at pics 1 & 3 you will see the 1/3 - 2/3 focus area = good

i posted this back in case you missed it

Don't forget that AF gives different results depending on the color of the light. For instance, I find that I have to use a different setting for incandescent light vs daylight on my K10D.
