It is evident there is an SWD motor in the tested lens. The focusing mechanism is simply noiseless and is as quick as a flash. Running through the whole scale, no matter from what end, takes about 0.5 of a second – a splendid result indeed.

Accuracy is a small problem, though. A high-end system lens, put on the E-3, also undeniably the best body in the system, should be practically 100% accurate. In reality, that set in our studio missed in 9% of shots. It is not a lot but we had expected a better result, especially that the tested lens on the body belonging to our editorial office, also had a slight tendency to front focus.
