50mm f/1.4d night shots (with D80)
Oct 25, 2007

I tested this lens the other night in the city using aperture 1.4, however the results were very poor. 95% of shots looks very blurry and out of focus. Even shots of well lit areas look bad. Last night I took some street shots at f/2 and the results look a lot better. Is this normal for this lens?

Both nights I used aperture priority mode. I think most of the settings were the same but the second night I shot using AF-C (continuous) and AF-assist was on. Does this matter?

The other question, in my view finder I am not seeing the exposure bars. Any reason why?

Finally my FUNC is set is ISO, and if I press it I see the ISO in the viewfinder but rotating both dials does not change the ISO. Why?

JC.
