10. Autofocus

The tested lens is equipped with an ultrasonic autofocus motor SWM – small wonder its performance is noiseless. Taking into account the presence of that motor and the small range of the manual focus ring we expected also a good speed. Unfortunately the lens wasn’t very fast but it would be difficult to have any serious reservations here. Running through the scale from the minimum focusing distance to infinity and taking a shot lasts about 0.8 of a second. That time seems to be a bit shorter the other way round.

We don’t have any reservations concerning the accuracy of the focusing mechanism. Attached to both bodies its performance was practically flawless.

When it comes to the front or back focus tendency we had no distinct problems whatsoever. In photos taken from a very close distance you could perceive a slight shift of depth of field in the direction of the lens but it was a very slight effect and the proper object still remained in the range of the depth so you didn’t have any impression the photos were out of focus.
