    1. adrian,
      You have to look at all the other 70 or so photos taken during the match, there are 25% that are out of focus.
      In this case 1/1000 of a second at 2.8, this is a little slow, I prefer to take them at 1/1250 or more. I use a 50mm 1.4 which helps keep the speed up when it get dim. Just looked at your pictures of the sewing machine, very good.

      1. I´ll bear that in mind, i had a really crappy build 50mm Canon 2.8, i dropped it on the floor and it came apart, snapped it all together, but it´s seriously Kaput, un usable even with micro adjusment, but at €100.00 i can stand the loss. The 1.4 is altogether a different animal, think i´m gonna get myself one of these! That one of yours could easily be a magazine front cover! cheers Adrian

      2. I did have the Nikon 50mm 1.8 but the build quality was not so good, the 1.4 costs a bit more but it is a much better lens. Fixed focal length lenses are cheaper, it does mean you have to move around more to get your pictures and there are some you will never get.
        I had a 28 ~ 70 zoom that came with the camera, had it repaired once but it broke again, took it apart to see what was inside, found the fault but could not fix it, threw it in the bin and got the 50.
        All the best
