70-400 GII - Having issues getting good results


I just got this lens this week, it is my first G lens. I am hoping that the awesome photographers here can help me. I am not sure if it is the lens, my expect ions or something I am doing wrong but I am not getting the clarity that I expected from this lens. I have tried it on my A77 and A99 with very similar results. Below is what I consider to be the best results I have gotten from each camera.  Maybe it's the lens, or maybe it needs micro focus adjustment, or maybe it's me.
I would greatly appreciate any input, I am not sure if I should keep the lens or not.
