Looking for Assistance with XF 100-400 Lens

Hello all!

I received this lens about a month ago, and am struggling to love it.

The issue I have is that almost everything is soft and this lens very often misses focus.

I am using it on my X-T2, and typically shoot from 1/500 to 1/2000 hand held. I am using this for nature photography (mostly birds) so I do not want to use a tripod / monopod.

I have tried with image stabilization on and off, but usually leave it off because of the fast shutter speed.

I was about to mail it to Fuji, but I figured I would ask here just in case there is something else I can try first.

(For reference, I was using the 50-230mm lens before this and was having better success)

Thanks!

Jason
