Whilst I understand your (correct) use of max aperture for dof effect I would still be concerned about the sharpness of the key areas.

This could be the lens as many need stopping down a stop or two to max sharpness....whilst recognising that’s contrary to your dof needs it may prove a point about the lens max sharpness potential in a test.

It would be my first check if I were trying to get the images sharper.

I don’t know how much post capture software sharpening you HAVE applied. Maybe not enough. Most images (especially raw files) benefit from 20% extra kick up the rear. You Gimp treatment shows that.

I don’t think you are doing anything wrong in the execution may just be the equipment is on its limit or you are not doing enough post processing.
