I was shooting the birds parallell to the camera so could’ve used manual focus. If the ducks were coming straight at me and it missed a little I wouldn’t be bothered. But, focus did hit as far as I can tell with the duck, it’s motion blur that ruins it for me. I’ll try a lot moreThe 85 might have the worst AF for birds out of all the lenses though. I do like the 85 but it would not be my first choice for anything wildlife.
