Nice pic.

Maybe I need more practice. I always use AF-ON / AF-C. I have had good sharp shots out of the 50g, but I find them harder to achieve than with the 85 1.4, and 135 f2. Obviously the latter two are higher grade lenses (but older / AFD) but with the longer focal lengths it should be those that are harder to produce as many keepers.

The 'sloppiness' seems apparent to me in the G, as opposed to the D focusing which seem to "grab" focus, and you can almost feel the lens snap into focus.
