True - Nailing focus requires a steady hand, but the pictures turn out like paintings with bokelucious OOF areas... https://farm6.staticflickr.com ...99461295_8fa6e9af4b_b.jpg
I have a 135/2L and a Pentagon 135/2.8 both are nice on the fuji. The latter has an almost 360˚ focus turn and so, so smooth but is just a little soft in comparison to more up to date lenses. Trying to focus a 135/1.8 on a child must be hard work.

Yes its hard(er). If they are moving around a lot, then its nearly impossible, however if they are sitting and playing, I focus approximately quickly and then gently rock back and forth a little to get the tack sharp focus, even then, it sometimes take a few images to nail one. The DoF is super thin, especially at very close distances.

Do you own the shop? you go there a lot! lol
No, not mine but I know what you mean. it's tiny & a little bit scruffy but has about the best coffee I have ever had, right in the middle of my tiny village. The owner is a Kiwi and cool with my moving his lights about if I want a shoot. We put a 5 foot florescent strip light on a heavy base stand one evening so now it stands upright with a balanced 4000K bulb in there. It's one of my favourite places to shoot and doing a book about the customers right now, about to print out the first 10 or so for his wall to encourage the rest. Fun.
