Nikon Nikkor Z 14-30 mm f/4 S

10. Autofocus

The autofocus of the Nikkor Z 14-30 mm f/4 S joined with the Nikon Z7 camera is practically noiseless. You don't even hear a delicate whirr of moving elements. The speed is also very good – running through the whole distance range and confirming the focus takes just 0.3 of a second and it's an excellent result.

We don't have any reservations concerning accuracy of the autofocus because in this area the Nikkor performs as it should and as befits an expensive, professional lens. We didn't have any misses either in the studio or shooting outside but from a lens of such parameters we didn't expect anything less.

The photo below might suggest that the lens had a slight back focus tendency but you should remember that effect was visible only at the maximum focal length and while taking photos from a very close distance; mind you, the proper target still was included in the depth of field area.
