The autofocus mechanism works with a hushed whirr but that sound is not very bothersome. The autofocus is very quick although there is no ultrasonic motor inside. It goes throughout the zoom range in less than 0.5 second each way.

At the 11-22 mm focal lengths the depth of field is so deep that reaching good results in the category of autofocus accuracy is not a problem. The Olympus 11-22 mm is not an exception here because in studio condition it missed in just 3% of shots. We didn’t notice any problems with front or back focus either.
