I had one for a while but I replaced it because of what you describe: very inconsistent results with focussing. When the focus was spot on it took nice pictures (like yours) so it was a nice lens to have. But it was always hit and miss and that really annoyed me.

Replaced it with a 50 1.4 and while it's not as nice as my 85 1.8 I like it a lot. Quality is not much better than the 1.8 but at least focus is consistent.

I was going to ask question about 'question on the focusing'.

If you count by percentage, what is the percentage of missed focus in total (approximately).

I am interested in this lens, not only, but mainly because it is quite cheap, but sample photos shows that it takes good shots. But of course people tend to show the best shots taken with the lens.
And there aren't many reviews on this lens.
