10. Autofocus

The tested lens was equipped with an ultrasonic autofocus motor (SWM). Because of that the focusing mechanism works noiselessly and is very fast at the same time. Running through the whole distance scale takes it just about 0.5 of a second and is slowing down just a bit when the lighting conditions are worse.

The 28 mm focal length is a relatively wide angle of view so the depth of field, even at the maximum relative aperture, is not especially shallow either. Because of that the standards concerning the autofocus accuracy are not set especially high and the tested lens has no problems with performing well – the number of misses in studio conditions didn’t exceed 1%. Such a result is really good and praiseworthy.

Additionally the lens didn’t show any noticeable front or back focus tendency and it concerned both bodies, used in our test. It can also be clearly seen in the photos below.
