10. Autofocus

The autofocus of the tested lens works noiselessly. As it often happens in the case of macro lenses, it has to cover quite a wide range of distances so the speed of the focusing mechanism is not especially impressive. Running through the whole scale takes over 1.5 seconds – so it isn’t very fast. Fortunately there is a focus limiter available, situated on the casing on the lens; using it you can speed up the work of the mechanism. Applying a range from 0.4 of a meter to infinity makes running through the scale as fast as 0.6-0.7 of a second.

The accuracy is exemplary. In studio conditions we didn’t notice any distinct misfocus so the lens can be only praised here.

There were also no problems with any front or back focus tendencies.
