Close it to 2.8 or 3.5. Then you will get more focus, less blur

Yes, I know. But then the whole purpose of getting 1.8 is kind of lost...

I did a chart test as well as battery test. Chart test was a bit off, like the lens was front focusing just slightly (but I'm not 100% sure if I did this correctly). The battery test was fine.

The funny thing is that the lens focuses differently in the same focus/framing. Let's name Shot A and B. Shot A looks sharp where I focused. Shot B looks softer where I focused. In both shots, the focus point and framing stayed the same, and Shot B is taken right after Shot A.

Is this the characteristics of this lens?

When this lens is set to F/11 and focused in the right spot the level of detail it captures is truley amazing.

The exact same thing happens with mine! I noticed it's the "fine adjustment" when achieving focus, that simply is just not "fine" enough (the focus steps are too big).
I don't know if it's a characteristic of the lens or not, but I now shoot each scene a few extra times to make sure at least ONE of it is accurate.

Here's a link to a thread I started about this very issue. - http://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1015698

You need to buy an extension tube (or set). You find the on ebay. Kenko is probably the most well known trusted brand. My set cost just under $100

Here is one from today. I would consider this hand held shot pretty sharp. F/5.6 gave me the DOF I was chasing

1D2 + 50 II @ ISO 50 1/50 f5 There was so much dust I didn't want to use my 70-200 so I chose to "sacrafice" my 50 II. As always it performed like an L!
