Your left side focusing is not at all like the posted link from Malaysia . He had good sharpness across the frame and is not complaining about anything except when using a far left side focal point, the whole scene misses optimum AF focus accuracy. Selecting other focal points, the images are sharp across the whole scene. In any manner of focusing, other than far left side AF focusing point, on wider then 40mm, AF VF and AF Live View delivers sharp images. Focusing manually, anything in the scene on the same focal plane is also sharp.
You seem to be suggesting a different problem than what anyone else has reported, that the left side of the frame, objects on the same focal plane are out of focus when the center is in focus.
Have you tested the same scenes with tripod mounted Live View?
Have you identified the problem is more evident with some lenses? Which ones? Are there some lenses that are consistently sharp?
Are handheld shorts worse in this problem?
How did you rule out lens decentering as a cause?
Does the aperture have the expected influence on the side to side sharpness?
I am assuming you already tried all these steps as first basic diagnostic steps to determine where and if the problem resides. What were the results?
