Thanks for the reply.

I'm starting to think that part of the problem was due to my lack of knowledge of the camera/lens.
From another hand, it still does seem to have some problem going on.

I'll try to get another 50mm lens and perform the same test. If the problem is gone, there may be something wrong with the lens itself.

May be also interesting to test my lens on a different body. Will see if i can do that too.

Yep. And definitely try to test the lens on some 400D and newer body, or 20D and newer body. Or 7,5,1D body.

But from my experience, 50/1.8 are focusing much better on 1D bodies than on anything else, so sometimes I think that the problem isn't in lens' design as such (they have an undeserved reputation as bad AF performers).
