    Jason, Found that ditching the dynamic area and going single area helped a bunch, even in AF-C.
    This was the least sharp of the game but I liked it anyways.

    I've never had any success with the dynamic area focussing on the D50. I think the five only focus areas are to limiting and I suspect that it would work much better on the higher level cameras with more focus points.

    I think I am getting the same conclusion here, I was frustrated with the 70-200, but kind of thought it must be something I was doing because sometimes it was sharp, then I would shoot some sports and wonder what went wrong. It took much better/sharper images this last go round. No more dynamic for me.

    Now on the D300 with 51 points would be a different story, I will definitely like to take that for a test drive.

    Send the 70-200VR to me in March next year and I will extensively test it it on my D50 with both dynamic and fixed focus areas just to make sure that there is no issue with your D50 body.
    I should be finished testing after the last Soccer game in early September so you will have the lens back with my conclusions by late September.

    K1W1, bobc4d, rawpaw18,

    Awesome pics! I LOVE sports photos. Keep it coming!

    I took some shots at the US Open in NYC early Sept... not quite as nice, but some decent ones there. Slowly cropping and post-processing (like a few a weekend), then I'll be able to post some of my own!
