Could this be the culprit?

Yes, the focus could be better. The more light you have, the easier it is to obtain maximum focus. Due to the shallow depth of field, the slightest movement of the camera closer to or futher from the subject can throw itin or out of focus. Try locking focus/exposure with a half-shutter press and then move the camera physically closer or futher slightly until you reach maximum focus and then complete the shutter buttonpress. Setting the camera to f8 will help some by giving you maximum dof. It does take some practice. Coins and jewelry are good subjects to practice on. Also, using the evf rather then the lcd to frame the shot will increase the stability of the camera by keeping it close to your body; lock your elbows.
