There's a little hunting at times, but I don't know if that's the lens or the camera since I don't have another lens to compare. It's defintely not as fast to acquire as the D3 + Sigma 500mm + TC-14E combination that I use for the North Shore, but it's good enough once it locks on. Results are sharp and contrast is fine. Beats what I get from the Sigma 50-500mm, but reach is a bit lacking. Overall, it's a surprisingly good lens, and the size and weight are a huge plus.

My question is hows the AF with the 30-110, do you have sample pics? Im trying to shoot water sports as well specifically kiteboarding.
