The tested lens on the D200 or the D3x works noiselessly – finally we deal here with an ultrasonic motor of high quality. The speed of work is practically the same on both bodies – as quick as a flash in both cases. Running through the whole scale takes about 0.5-0.6 of a second. That’s not all, though. There’s also an autofocus limiter which allows you to limit the scale to the range from 5 meters to infinity. When you use it, the autofocus speed accelerates to about 0.4 of a second. Indeed a result worthy of a good journalistic zoom lens.

What about the accuracy? It would be difficult to fault. In studio conditions the lens missed in only 2% of all cases which is a very good result. We didn’t notice any problems with front or back focus either.
