Tamron's AF speed is not very fast

That's what I found out. I have used this lens with A55, A900 and now A99. It's the slowest lens (AF speed) in my lens collection thus might effect the sharpness. Also you were shooting BIF head on which is tough for any camera. On the positive side the lens is quite sharp at 300mm even wide open. Here are couple sample images when I first got it (handheld 300mm wide open aperture):
