10. Autofocus

The tested lens is equipped with an ultrasonic SWM motor; small wonder the focusing mechanism is very silent. We have no reservations concerning the speed either – running through the whole distance scale takes just about 0.5 of a second, no matter whether you move from 0.28 of a meter to infinity or the other way round.

A large depth of field is not especially demanding when it comes to the accuracy of the autofocus and mainly because of it we assess it very well. In studio conditions the lens doesn’t have any misses, no matter whether it was attached to the D7000 or the D3x.

We didn’t notice any distinct problems with the back or front focus tendencies. To be honest in the case of D7000 you could see a light shift of the depth behind the proper focus but the effect was slight, visible only if you take photos from small distances, with the target still situated firmly inside the depth of field area.
