Way slow!

Compared to even the low-end EF lenses (such as the kit lens for the Digital Rebel) it's really really slow. My A520 takes about 12 seconds to cover the entire range from closest (scale indicates 0cm) to infinity.

Of course, you can prefocus using auto-focus, and fine-tune with manual focus. This will probably be faster.

It's smooth, but not continuous. It goes in a series of small, discrete steps and if you listen closely, you can hear the motor "chattering".
