Bad Copy of Nikon 80-400mm AF-S F/4.5 back to the reseller. :-(

I'm very disappointed in my copy of the 80-400 I just purchased.  I really hope it's my copy and NOT indicative of the lens design.  I've shot about 400-600 shots with this lens and I have yet to see anything that is crisp or sharp.  It's horrible....see test shots below.

Should I try another copy or is this the results a-typical?

Thanks

Al
