Sony 200-600mm with Sony A1

Hi there,

I have struck a bit of luck and received a Sony alpha 1 with the 200-600mm.

I have been using my nikon d850 up until now with a 500mm and was excited about the potential for 30 fps and better AF/potential for sharpness.

I was rather disappointed though by the combo so far when comparing to other photos I'm seeing online. A lot of my photos actually look blurry and especially so when cropped.

I shoot birds and have tried shooting at faster shutter speeds and have messed with my fstop and kept iso at less than 2000 (I usually shoot less than 400).

Is the best way to verify the integrity of the lens/copy of my  alpha 1 to bring it into a shop or post photos here?

I was really excited for this combo and want to see it's full potential.

Thank you in advance - I appreciate the help.
