Seems I need to center my subjects and crop to create compositional off-sets with this lens.

Any constructive comments on my experiences and/or this camera/lens combo would be much appreciated!

Here's a trick:

Switch to Continuous L, One-Shot AF. Chose whatever focus point works for the composition. Focus, and shoot a series of 3 to 5 photos, moving forward and backward ever so slightly while you rattle off the shots. Chances are one of the shots will be hitting focus perfectly, and that is what counts

Don't worry about the wasted electrons, they will recycle perfectly
