Sony GM 70 - 200 2.8 Sharpness Issue

I am wondering if anyone else has had the same or a similar experience.

I do not own the Sony 70 - 200 2.8 but I am hoping to get a copy by the end of the summer. I have however used various copies (3 to be exact) on different occasions. All outdoor sports related.

And all copies have not been very sharp wide open. I am not a stickler for sharpness so this is an observation but multiple sources have spoken about the GM lenses being able to resolve 100mp but it my experience for this lens its less than 24mp.

I have used the Tamrons 70 - 200 and Sony’s 70 - 200 F4 which where both sharper. Also my 28 - 75 Tamron Fe blows the Sony out the water at 70mm for sharpness.

I shoot both the A9 and A7R3. And no I haven’t made an error with my stabilisations settings / focus / shutter speed etc. This after shooting outdoor sports 3000 + images.
