In the case of both bodies the lens worked correctly, without any backfocus or frontfocus tendencies. You could notice the difference in the focusing motor quality used in A900 and in A100 because with the former the lens worked quieter and quicker; one must add, tough, the difference wasn’t huge.

When it comes to the autofocus accuracy the A900 camera performed better – somehow we are not surprised here. While working on the full frame body with a good quality focusing motor the lens’s performance was difficult to fault - it didn’t make one single error! On the A100, though, the number of errors increased to the 5%, but it’s still a good result, deserving our praise.
