Nice Dav.

As I 50-500 user I can make some recomendation.

Firstly at 500 mm shoot the lens at f/8 its its sweet spot. This also increases the dof which is very narrow at 500mm.

That lens looks like it front focusing a bit . I have had 2 and they where both inclined to front  focus at bit. I would dial in about +2 on the tele side of the lens adjustments. +2 does not sound like  lot but a 500 mm it is.
