As we’ve already mentioned in the introduction the Zuiko lenses on Olympus bodies rarely have any problems with accuracy or front and/or back focus. Our measurements confirm that statement. In studio conditions the ZD 70-300 mm missed in just 1% of cases and there was not even a hint of any front or back focus tendencies.

As Olympus didn’t decide to use SWD motor, the autofocus is neither silent nor quick.
