If you look here:
it looks like this lens is sharpest around 5.6. I wouldn't go above F8 unless you really needed the additional DOF.
My 135L is sharpest at F5.0 as per Focal Pro. Is your lens AFMA'd to the body?
For fun you could always try walking up the sync speed too - it is a function of the camera max sync which was talked about earlier along with the trigger max sync. The worst thing that can happen is you will start to see the banding of the shutter creep into the shot - from there back it off a 1/3 of a stop or so.
I've never had any issues at 1/200s with the 5DIII, so that could help, too.
+1. I shoot my mk3 at 1/200 triggering wirelessly.
I agree with the misfocused theory. It doesn't look like motion blur, it looks like slight back focusing.
