Poor Auto-focusing

LA Wedding Photographer, Nikon
19 February 2011
  • Summary: There are many rave review of this lens out there, and when it does hit its target, the image is beautiful. However, the focus mechanism is somewhat faulty. I'm getting a success rate of about 30-40%. The rest of the images are all out of focus. I tried my copy on 3 D700's and still had the focusing problem. I even locked down my camera on a tripod, thinking that maybe it was user error or shaky hands, but no...the focusing does have problem, images come out of focus.

Severe autofocus problems

Peter, B&H Photo
2 November 2010
  • Excerpt: Yes, this lens could produce stunning results due to its exceptional optical performance. If there were no problems with the autofocus. I tried two copies of this lens (both imported versions at B&H) and could not believe what I saw. I was not able to produce even one sharp image at f1.4 and distances beyond let´s say 100 ft. At infinity the autofocus did not work at all. I am not nitpicking here and talking about some softness. The images were definitely blurred.
  • Pros: Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Defective autofocus

WON'T AUTOFOCUS BEYOND 30 ft.

Adorama
30 July 2010
  • Excerpt: This lens WON'T AUTOFOCUS BEYOND 30 feet--This DISASTROUS AUTOFOCUS FAILURE happens in all types of lighting and with all types of targets. Whenever I try to autofocus on targets over 30 feet away, my D700 focuses the 24mm f/1.4 at 15(!) feet and gives a solid "focus-locked-on" green light indication. There are many reliable internet reports of similar autofocus-failures with this lens on many different Nikon bodies.

Awful Autofocus

Tv, Adorama
30 July 2010
  • Excerpt: This lens was greatly awaited. When it arrived, I got about 50% focus reliability. The silent wave motor on this and the new 50mm 1.4 lens does not meet professional standards. Very slow, and VERY inaccurate. It seems it runs out of power to drive it to complete focus.

Autofokus-Problem an D90. Fokuspunkt liegt jedesmal zu weit hinten

fahrsfahrwerkaus, Amazon
19 January 2011
  • Summary: In der Hoffnung, dieses Objektiv würde an meiner Kamera keinen Ärger machen, da ich noch drei andere Objektive völlig ohne Front- und Backfokus-Probleme betreibe, habe ich es mir für meine D90 gekauft. Doch leider ist jedes Foto mit einem Backfokus behaftet, das heisst, der anvisierte Fokuspunkt liegt zuweit hinten.
