500pf and 1.4iii

I bought the 1.4 extender recently and I'm finding just about all my shots are soft especially and long distances which is where I would want it to be sharp at closer distances I can get some success but it seems hit and miss. Here's a couple of shots that should be easy to focus on. I'm using the D500 with 25pt. and single pt. focus. Not sure if there's something wrong with the extender or not but I've got a feeling it might be front focusing. I'm thinking of returning the extender unless someone can figure out why it's not working so well.

quite far away and very soft.

Looks sharp but if you look close it's not sharp. this was fairly close.
