Re: Nifty fifty STM - focus issues, or human error?

-you dont have to go out to 5.6, should be consistent just above F2

-for test being a little close can help with bias, note that focus should be 1/3 in front and 2/3 behind.

-FYI focos and recompose at 1.8, 1.2, 1.4 is going to give you poor consistency it is really hard to nail shots when moving and trying to keep the focal plane fixed especially with a depth of field of centimeters (depending of course on how close you are to your subject). Getting that eye pin sharp EVERY time is just not going to happen under 1.8.

-looks like the issue however is sorted, glad if what I suggested helped.
