comment Is a Canon SX 50 a useful camera for a DSLR-Photographer?
Thanks, that's really useful. So I see that my idea is not actually that "crazy" ;)

I'm talking about to use it as a second camera for the main-purposes of tele-shoots, and don't want to compare there overall functionality/quality, which is kind of senseless.

Thanks for providing me that useful information. I just want to clarify some things: - Image quality is important, that's right. I mainly want raw because I can do stuff like white-balancing without loss in quality, and most cameras don't to it right - If I want to have the same focal-range, I need the 100-400mm + 2x Tele-Converter. Since I know the teleconverter will reduce the light, there is only an aperture of about F11 left. Even at sunlight I have to push my ISO up to high values, while with the compact I thought I can still stay at 100-200 which should be low enough for good resuls.

comment Will the Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 give better auto-focus results than the 50mm f/1.8?
I think you're right. May I should really go for some lens like the EF100/2.8. I already have zoom-lenses (18-55 and 55-250) so I think this is the best choice since I want to shot in low-light and want to get some nice bokeh. I know about the crop-factor on the APS-Sensor so I think I should check first if the 100mm is suited for my needs. Thanks for all your hints on that!

Thanks for sharing this useful information. I already tried the thing like focusing first time, then refocus, but most time it doesn't change anything regarding to sharpness. However, I think you made the point that it doesn't make much sense to upgrade to the F1.4. Thanks for that!

Forgot to mention, I use Single Shot AF and it also occurs on static subjects (trees, plants, ...).

Hi, and many thanks for your answer! I have the 550d body, it doesn't allow the adjustment of micro-focus (afaik). So far I didn't have the opportunity to try the lens with another body, but I think it doesn't have to do with this since other lenses are working fine when focusing (it simply seems like the auto-focus motor doesn't have enough "stops" to get always the right focus). When people are about 2-3 meters away the face is pretty sharp, and this is what I'm looking for (like capturing without flash to keep the light).
