Does not autofocus, and manually has to be set in the "locked" position. Even then the focus is erratic, sometimes on the subject, sometimes in the background. I am planning to go personally to the store to learn if I am doing something wrong (doubt it since even mounting it feels like forcing the lens into the camera), in the meantime I would not...
