I am not familiar with the 50D (working with the 7D), but you might try selecting the outer points for AF one or more of the center points. It works for me with a Kenko and the 100-400. But AF is very slow and may miss entirely due to reduced light hitting the sensor.

The AF is certainly no good for real action shooting.

I started in the 50's - my first picture was taken with a Leica and hooked me for life. I no longer use my Leicas, but I am still taking pictures. Some things never change.
