Yes, the kind of clicky noise when the AF is making microadjustments is completely normal, when using AF Servo.

A good photographer can take extraordinary photos anywhere, with any camera and any lens while a mediocre one will take mediocre ones everywhere, with every camera and every lens.
Never limit yourself with what others think you should do. Shoot what you find interesting, exactly the way you want to.

To me it looks slightly front focussed. In almost all the shots the child's face is slightly off and the front of the jacket seems in focus. Would have to see the focus points but in the woman one where she is above the child it's most apparent.

ximix I love your shots as well, but I have always thought many of them were off a bit in focus. You might want to do some control type shots for accuracy.

Can you do a MA with it on your camera? Keep up the good work!

I love this wonderful lens. Since the purchase, it is the main lens on the camera.
