Sorry it turned out that way.

Unfortunately, it is not easy to tell the right from the wrong people, without spending a lot of time here researching and verifying comments. Number of posts, expensive equipment, or even quality of photos posted, are not reliable indicators of reliable comments. For example, even DPReview's review of this lens did not warn about this AF problem.

Lenstip OTOH only said this::

"The autofocus accuracy is absolutely beyond reproach for a change. In lab conditions with good lighting the autofocus didn’t miss one single time."

Photozone did not have anything to say except praise for the AF.

I suppose that's why we come to these forums for feedback. I suggest to OP to check widely and pay particular attention to any negative feedback, so as to err on the safe side.
