Some kicks for a start.

- use manual focus, in case you have the AF version
- apply 'focus bracketing', that is that you make a sequence of images with a slightly different focus setting
- prevent stray light coming into the lens
- what aperture do you use
- use mirror lock-up

Last but not least, can you post an example? You can either make a file downloadable by posting a link to it or paste a link to a screenshot into a post (you have to place that screenshot online first, in a photo service, Dropbox or web site for example).

We received our new system last week: IQ160, 645DF, 120 MF, 110LS. We shoot jewelry exclusively here and it works perfectly right out of the box. Perhaps you've touched the eye-dipoter knob? Could maybe be something as silly as that. Otherwise, your lens might need some calibration if the above instructions didn't help?

Even at f20, diffraction plays little to harm the image from my initial tests.
