Sony FE 70-200mm F4 Problems with OSS

Curious if anyone else has run into issues with the OSS on the FE 70-200mm F4 lens. It works flawlessly with single shots, both handheld and on tripods, but when I switch to bracketed shots or 3/5 shot continuous mode, the first shot is fine, but the subsequent shots have some motion blur. This happens at all shutter speeds I've experimented with, and the problem is much more pronounced with distant subjects vs. closer subjects.

I don't experience this problem on other lenses (16-35mm GM and 85mm f1.8 are what I have also tested), but I don't have any other stabilized lenses I can test at the moment.

This behavior appeared out of nowhere, too. No drops or bumps to the lens I'm aware of, it worked perfectly for me a couple of weeks ago, and then the issues appeared the next time I went to use it.
