Can I ask a question - I know DOF is super deep with the lens, but has focusing it ever been at all a challenge for you? Any tips?

Not really except for lower light @F3.5 and close up shots. That's basically the only way to get OOF shots. Once in a while I set it up for some closer focusing (people up close around a dinner table) and I forget to go back to hyperfocal.

But it's rare. I'd say that going hyperfocal at F5.6 it's close to impossible to get OOF pictures unless the subject is in your nose...
