Shutter speed is too slow
In reply to Philippe Laurens, Jul 5, 2013

1/250th is a very slow shutter speed. Forget all the comments about 1.4, shallow DOF and bad focusing, that is not the right shutter speed. It is very easy to shake a camera at that speed, and it is very easy for the subject to move. I have found that if sharpness is important then I need to be at 1/1000th or faster. Do a few test photos and you will see what I mean.
