Re: SEL50F18 Slow AF Experience for me as well
In reply to headofdestiny, May 15, 2012

I got my 50 yesterday and have tested it mostly indoors in both good and bad light. This is my impression of the AF.

  • AF is slower then kit-lens.

  • It basically always do a full in-and-out focus before nailing it.

  • Focus is very accurate once it's done hunting.

  • I feel like I get more occasions were focus cannot be found on this then the kit-lens (based on a feeling after the short time of usage)

  • Continous AF is a eipc failure. I tried it on my cat, which obviously moves alot, but due to the hunting and full-in-and-out it is totally useless.

But man is it sharp..
