Not sure what else to do
Stop pixel peeping and shooting test shots.
Go out and take real world pictures, make some prints and enjoy your camera.

I bought a new Canon 80D in October of 2016. I told the shop I was having trouble with it but over an hours drive. finally went to one of their classes.. 20% (if that) are perfect pictures but the rest are all blurry.. I love being out with my camera. Love taking pictures of other families when asked but started thinking it was me.. Then my daughter used it and does a lot of photography and they were blurred for her also.. Just had it sent it and after three weeks it is back and I think that it is worse. I am so upset about this camera so don't think it is you

Easiest way to test it. Take 2 photos, exactly the same settings, but one using live view, and one using the view finder. If there not the same, then you need to do a afma with the lenses.
I sent my 80d in, and didnt seem like it got any better, so I returned it. Been using a 6d and have not had any problems
Lenses focus at the maximum aperture, which a given lens is capable of. When you fire the shutter, the lens stops the aperture down to your exposure setting. Using an f/2.8 lens causes high end cameras to focus faster, and sharper, with certain AF points because the AF sensor is receiving more light. The center AF point is almost always the best AF point to use as a starting point.
If you are shooting a still subject, then use One Shot mode with Evaluative Metering, which should be the default settings from the factory. Only use AI Servo mode if the subject distance to the camera is changing, and only then if the distance change exceeds your depth of field of your aperture setting. I like to use a stopped down aperture with AI Servo, f/5.6 to f/8. Remember, though, the lens will focus at maximum available aperture. I rarely us DOF preview, so I disable it.

I just made an account because of how condescending you are. Your entire post is questioning their abilities rather than their gear (both the 80D and 50 1.4 have had significant focus issues reported
