Yes. Like I said, I'm not impressed by the results from Nikon report, but I am satisfied as now the images are sharp for the real world. I could have easily argued they needed to try again and sent it back again, but real world is what I normally photograph, not focus targets.
I don't have any suggestions as to what might be wrong with your technique, so I too would be upset. But I would suggest you try some real world shots and just convince yourself they are also bad.
