I'd try it at f/4 or f/4.5 for the daytime games, increasing ISO speed if needed to keep shutter speeds up.

Most lenses are a bit sharper with improved contrast when stopped down some from wide open.

Comments seem to be mixed from KM and Sony dSLR owners with it, with most seeming to indicate it's a bit soft with the aperture wide open. So, I'd expect similar results on a Nikon model (as both use screw drive AF and should use the same type of design in these mounts). See some user reviews of it here mentioning softness with the aperture wide open (and there could be some variation between lens copies, which is why some users are saying center sharpness is OK at f/2.8 or f/3.2 ).

It sharpens up quite a bit stopping it down some from what I can see from it's MTF chart:

Thanks Jim,

That is what I was thinking, to stop it down to F4. I have some shots that apear to be very sharp and others are not. I tend to lean toward the way I am using the AF.

Any suggestions on the best settings for the AF in sports photography?

This pic is sharper and better focused than the other one posted earlier.
