Also, the lens has to be parfocal. It means, it must maintain the initial focus otherwise, there is added work to re-acquire focus.

Is this listed in specs - or, how can one accurately test if a lens is parfocal? All prosumer videocams I've used are parfocal, not sure about zoom lenses I use with T2i.
