RS505: Poor shifting going to smaller rear cog

Just got a 2016 Fuji Tread for off season neighborhood workout rides. Very happy with the bike, but will be taking it back for a look at the rear shifter. The throw is long, and unresponsive. Terrible for a 105 level. Is the a "new normal"? Can the sloppiness be tightened up? The discs are hydraulic, but are the cables for shifting gears also hydraulic? Do the cables allow for adjustments? This could be a deal breaker for me, even for casual workout rides. Would an upgrade to the Ultegra level (685?) help? The bike was a great value for my needs. I have Di2 on my Kestrel. But, I've certainly had manual shifters for decades. What's up?
