Sony FE 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 G OSS Lens versus 55-210

I currently use the 55-210 lens with my a6000, but find that it isn't very sharp a lot of the time. Sometimes it doesn't focus accurately from one image to the next.  Sometimes I think it is just the inherent shortcoming of the lens (after all it is a cheap lens).  So I'm wondering if anyone has done back to back comparisons of the 55-210 to the new 70-300.  I'd like to see if there is enough difference to replace my 55-210 with the much larger and more expensive lens (any maybe even to replace my Canon DSLR/70-300mm combination as well).
