Is it me or my A7Riv?

So I recently purchased an A7Riv as an upgrade from my A7Riii. Never had any issues with the R3. Always sharp. But with the R4, I seem to be getting a lot of motion blur or just out of focus images. Im going to attach a few to show what im dealing with. Now im not sure if its just me not knowing how to handle 61mp or if its the camera. Friends of mine think it may be a lemon also. but anything that has movement, no matter the shutter speed, is out of focus or blurry.

Thats the difference in studio. Which is crazy to me considering theyre at f8

Then I tried my hand at some BIF shots just for the fun of it considering the cropping ability..or so I thought

A7Riv - Tamron 70-180mm at 180mm - 1/2000 sec - f/2.8 - ISO 1250

Is it me not handling the camera properly or is it the camera?
