I have been using the SEL for a while now, and I must say I'm a little disappointed. The image quality is great, but the lack of speed for focus is really annoying when trying to make photos of the young ones. I would definitely not recommend this lens for that purpose.

Firmware update will get you PDAF in the 50mm.

Thanks! I had already enabled this version a while ago.. didn't seem to get me more speed. But now I have just set this setting: "Phase Detection AF Area" to "on" and now it focusses a lot faster..

It seems in contradiction with the fact that Phase Detection is always on (check out this topic: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3358961), if possible. Any thoughts on this?
