I have been happy with the lens at 1.8 but your focus has to be dead on, especially if close. At 4 feet your DOF is approx 1/3 inch in front of and behind focus plane. A running subject is not a fair test for such a shallow DOF. The 2/3 of an inch moving plane of sharpness is demanding on your focus system of both the camera and the lens. Bumping the f stop to 2.2 gives you about a 2 inch plane of sharp focus. This is still demanding but it worked for most shots.
