I played with it briefly, but I don't really care to mess with it too much. I figured I'd just use it and see what happens.

focus and recompose with a wide aperture really shifts the focus plane unless you are super careful. Works ok if there is a lot of distance between you and the subject but at a close distance, it's better to just use the outer focus points.
hard to see from the resized photos but seems like misfocus issues, you should be able select a focus box in live view and take a shot. 6d has MFA feature that should help but first you need to figure out whether it is back or front focusing (using central point).
I recalibrate my lens every 3 to 6 months to make sure it's at its optimal setting. Try using the Dot Tune method which can be found in THIS VIDEO.
I'm gonna have to watch that video like 5 more times...I haven't the slightest idea what he's talking about, lol.

Good day folks, finally got a chance to back to this thread with test photos. Not sure if I am doing something wrong or if there is an issue with the lens. This is the only lens I feel is not right or I may not using good technique when using IS. I did receive focus confirmation, but clearly the ones with IS on look like I just missed the focus.
