The autofocus of the tested lens works noiselessly. Combined with the Olympus E-PL1, belonging to our editorial office, it was also quite fast – running through the whole distance scale and focusing took it 0.5-0.6 of a second.

The accuracy of the mechanism is praiseworthy as well – there were practically no misses at all. It is interesting, though, that despite using contrast-detection method of focusing the mechanism still moves the depth of field right in front of the proper object. Fortunately in most of cases the object itself is also situated in an area with fully acceptable sharpness.
