There is an art to using the reflex. I have used it on my A55 and A57 and my friends A99. It is sharp and clear on all of them. Like most zoom lenses ramp up the ISO and aim for  a highish shutter speed. A monopod is my preferred stabiliser or even better a tripod.

I see you ramped up the ISO to 200

I agree that it can take sharp images and there is an knack to using it.  Several excellent shots using the 500 mirror have been posted on the weekly wildlife thread over the years.
