IME, you really have to punch it to get the ZF to downshift immediately, most likely because it's tuned for fuel efficiency when it's not in sport mode. Once you get the hang of how much throttle it takes to get a downshift, it should happen pretty quickly and reliably. Another option is to use the paddles to downshift (if you have them). The ZF will go back into full automatic mode a few seconds later if you're not in sport mode.
