In my case, I think the VR was off or something because even at high shutter speeds, I was getting out of focus shots.

Why were you using VR at high shutter speeds?

My keeper rate was very low around 60% which I felt was unacceptable. I returned the lens to the seller as defective. They couldn't send me a replacement since it was now back-ordered so I moved on to other choices.

Maybe you have extensive experience with long lenses, but if not, just getting used to a lens like a 80-400 takes a while. In my experience, the hit rate is always low at first, and then gets significantly better as one get used to the lens. Some people of course adapt faster to new gear then others, for me it sometimes takes a while
