The Nikkor AF-S 35 mm f/1.8G ED is equipped with an ultrasonic autofocus motor called SWM. The work of the focusing mechanism is very silent and quick. Running through the whole distance scale and finding the right focal point takes about 0.4 of a second which is a very good result.

The lens didn’t have any problems with the accuracy of the mechanism although, as you can see in photos below, it had to be regulated on both test camera bodies as it featured a back focus tendency. After the regulation, though, we didn’t have any reservations concerning its performance. In studio conditions the lens missed in less than 5% of cases which is a very sensible result.
