Nikon Nikkor AF-S 70-200 mm f/4.0G ED VR

10. Autofocus

The tested lens is equipped with an ultrasonic autofocus motor called Silent Wave Motor (SWM) – small wonder the focusing mechanism is practically noiseless and fast. Running through the whole distance scale takes the lens about 0.8 of a second no matter what the focal length is and regardless of light conditions. You have also a focus limiter at your disposal, with a range from 3 meters to infinity. When you use the limiter the autofocus becomes quick as a flash and the full run takes just 0.3-0.4 of a second.

We don’t have any reservations concerning the accuracy either – the number of misses in studio conditions reached 1%.

When it comes to the front or back focus tendencies, the lens often set focus slightly behind the desired object while attached to the Nikon D200. In the case of the D3x the focus was always set where it should.
