Nikkor 18-105 VR is equipped with the SWM motor. The motors of that type are usually found in the cheapest Nikon lenses and they don’t have any breathtaking achievements. In the case of the tested lens, the situation is the same. The focusing is silent but not very quick. It’s nothing more than an average level, maybe a tad better.

When the accuracy is concerned, the focusing is difficult to fault. In studio the lens missed just in 2% of cases and had no backfocus or frontfocus tendencies.
