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

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.
