Hi Paul,

My first thought after viewing your images was heat waves due to the time of the day and probably high temperature. I have had images like these even from my very best prime lenses due to the same type of conditions.

I suggest that you try test shooting a target early in the morning before it gets too hot. Use a tripod if you have one. Remove the filter if you have one installed. Use the 2 second timer. Shoot the target at 500mm at all the apertures from f/6.3 to f/11. Then do the same thing at 400mm and 300mm. You should find that the images at f/9, f/10, and f/11 are sharp. The images at f/8 could be acceptable. The images at wide open will probably not pass the test.
