Nikon Nikkor AF-S 85 mm f/1.4G

10. Autofocus

The new Nikkor was equipped with an SWM ultrasonic autofocus motor and because of that the mechanism is silent and efficient. Running through the scale takes the lens about 0.8-0.9 of a second and this value remains the same no matter whether we go from infinity to minimum focus or the other way round.

When it comes to the autofocus accuracy the lens would be difficult to fault. The number of misses reached just 4% and for such a shallow depth of field, offered by the tested lens, it is a very good result.

What’s interesting, in the case of the D200 and the D3x the lens had a slight back focus. On the latter it was easily corrected using the AF microregulation function. Unfortunately the D200 doesn’t offer such an option so its owner would be forced to either accept this flaw or visit a service centre.
