Question for Canon 500f4 users

I just got mine yesterday. Brand new fom B&H.

Is there a long learning curve with this lens? I've been using mine today with a tripod and IS and the pictures are not as sharp as I was expecting.
Infact quite e few seemed out of focus.

Also the AF sounds like its hunting when IS is on and it only seems to lock into focus when in one shot mode.

I would really appreciate any feedback from users of this lens before I have to send it back.

Thanks.
