Thanks wim,
I tried to focus on the face on dim light condition and it prob explain why it cant focus properly. I have no problem taking portrait during the day though. However, I do find my quality of portrait from 24 ii is not as sharp as 85 1.2 or 70-200 mm 2.8 ii. do you have similar problem? or may be my lens has focusing problem?

the portrait in 24 1.4 ii looks sharp in original frame but when i crop the image to see the face, its not as sharp as 70-200 or 85 1.2. Do u find this normal for wide angle lens?

I hope everything is ok with you Abram. Anyways, nice long exposure. :)

Thanks Julian, Im doing just fine, I managed to have an appendicitis two weeks ago totally out of the blue and thankfully I figured out what it was before it ruptured. Had surgery the next morning and spent a couple days in the hospital, then a week at my folks' place. Back to normal now, mostly. ;)

Rumours have it that they are developing a new sportscar, Julian. As a replacement to the Supra, which was awesome.

I would love a Supra replacement as the MKIV has given me 10+ years of enjoyment. I just hope they don't mess it up considering the direction Toyota has gone over the years. Also, a replacement will stop me buying a GTR in a year or two. :)

To Frames By Celly,

You have some pretty sharp shots there at the birthday party. Which AF did you use on the first one? Is it Spot AF or Single point AF? or some other settings?

I was thinking of selling this lens on the weekend due to its inconsistent af. I thought i bought a lemon copy. Anyway I played around with it and did some lens calibration trick and what a surprise, the lens start to perform up to its expectation. I love the bokeh and the sharpness of my pics now. No more blurred and unpredictable pics that I used to get. I think my copy prob as sharp as my 70-200 mm ii or may be sharper :cool:

To Bobjob,

How do you calibrate? did you do MA? I have heard that spot AF is for macro only, using it on non-macro shots may result in misfocus, don't know if that's true...I agree that when the 24mm takes sharp pictures, they are really sharp..
