In the case of the tested lens we set the focus using a comfortable, efficient ring with the working range of as much as 180 degrees. A depth of field distance scale, positioned on the lens, help us find the right settings.

You must remember, though, that even those users, who are very attached to the autofocus mechanism, here might not miss it at all. The tested lens’s parameters make the depth of field really significant. Even at the maximum relative aperture setting the focus on less than 4 meters will allow us to enjoy the depth from less than 2 meters to infinity. By f/8.0 any issues with focusing disappear practically completely. Setting the distance scale at 1.7 meters we can get sharp images in the range from 0.9 meter to infinity.
