    Hello Mark,

    Nice shots. Looks like you can make good use of this little gem. By the way, how is the autofocus performance?

    Nice shots Mark. I'm about to give the 50 1.8 a try this weekend at our family Christmas get together.

    Very good Mark,
    You will love this lens.
  5. Thanks for the comments.

    I think so far, so good - seems to focus pretty quickly. I did not notice in NC that when I look at my focus point, some of my shots are off. That is, I think I am focused on one spot and turns out I am focused at a different spot. I do not think this is equipment error but, "Me" error. I will have to investigate further to make sure it is just me.

    I saw in your EXIF that you used AF-C mode. This might be the reason, but I'm not sure.:confused: 
  7. Oh yeah! Your right - I turn that on when trying to track the fishies... And I was using the zone tracking - I cannot remember what that is called.
