Nikon Nikkor AF-S 200 mm f/2G ED VRII

10. Autofocus

The tested lens is equipped with an ultrasonic SWM motor. Its work is noiseless and very quick. Even in full range, running through the whole distance scale takes just 0.5 of a second. That’s why the usage of focus limiter, ranging from 5 meters to infinity, is not necessary in many cases but it’s worth mentioning that using it you can increase the speed further - running through the scale takes just 0.3 of a second. These are really impressing results, worth of an expensive, professional fixed-focal lens.

We don’t have any reservations concerning the accuracy of the focusing mechanism. In studio conditions the lens misfocused in just 1% of all cases which is a splendid result.

The lens, either attached to the D200 or the D3x, didn’t show any front or back focus tendency.
