Not a real test, but we do have mtf charts.

It's sharp in the center, however, sharpness drops too soon when going to the border. The EF is worse, but the RF still isn't good enough.

Any suggestions on an autofocussing $199 lens that performs better, on any mount...?

I'm not saying it's bad for it's price. It's just not good enough for me. Oh, and the RF mounts allows for a better performance.

I'd make a friendly suggestion that you add that extra context in future then. Initially, it sounded as if you were holding it to expectations far in excess of it's price point.
