Nikon Nikkor AF-S DX 35 mm f/1.8G

10. Autofocus

When starting to work with Nikkor 1.8/35 we immediately hear that we’re dealing with SWM autofocus drive. You can barely hear the focusing. The only thing that reaches our ears is the silent shuffling of the moving lenses inside. The mechanism is not demonic fast. It takes about a second to run through the scale.

Fortunately, focusing is accurate. In studio conditions, with our Nikon D200, it missed only in 6% of cases. It’s not ideal but in this price class the result is good.

 We haven’t noticed any tendency of front- or back-focusing.
