I agree with you the shots are definitely out of focus and it doesn't look like motion blur.

Maybe it would be worth doing some tests with the camera mounted on a tripod and use a lens test chart as a target. Then comparing two shots one taken with S-AF and another taken using C-AF. I think eliminating as many variables as possible is the only way to track down what the cause is.
