I'm having trouble with my 24-70mm nikor lens

I use this lens with my D800 and the camera is supposed to be great for focusing in low light. But I have a very hard time getting sharp images with this lens. Even in good light i will push the shutter release two or three times activating the auto focus, and every time making sure I am pointed right at my subjects eye and they come out soft. This happens at different apertures. Even at f11 I find my focus is off and d.o.f is very shallow. Now this happens to me about 70% of the time. My 16-85 that I replace with the 24-70 gave me nice sharp photo and the 24-70 was supposed to be an upgrade. Anyone else had a problem with this lens?
