This shot was was taken at close range at F/1.4. The bench he is sitting on is completely perpendicular to me, but there are circles of confusion right next to him and the ends of the bench appear to be back in focus. Any idea why?

I use this lens all the time at this aperture and haven't seen this before. It's not moire as far as I can tell.
