Anyone using *ist DL with FA 50mm F1.4?

I was looking for some real world samples of this combination. I was planning on purchasing the lens...

I have - be warned - *istDL has the worst AF ever and if you want to use
P-FA 50/1.4 in house be ready for BF/FF issues.

Thanks for the reply...

What is BF/FF? Maybe I should get a manual focus 50mm and save myself some $$$?

back focus/front focus... in fact I keep P-A50/1.7 almost full time now on
my *istDL... and in cases where I have use AF lenses w/ *istDL I have MF screen installed to be able to check after AF and refocus if necessary.

What do you mean by MF screen? How much would the P-A50/1.7 go for?
