Excellent. Thanks for the explanation. I appreciate it. The lens is sitting on my doorstep right now so I will get a chance to try it out tonight.

I wish I was better at explaining. It will all be obvious when you use the lens Also, the lens is great AF on nearish (portrait) type scenarios. It just likes a tweak of MF user guidance for focussing out beyond 15-20 metres reliably, if doubling up as a general purpose medium tele, or, as you say, the af trundles through the full range.

I will have to try mine on my NX300 to see how it focuses at infinity, the 45mm f/1.8 has been glued to my camera since I got it

A note to psperl, set your camera to have DMF enabled (direct manual focus) and set the focus aid to the one you want, zoom in and/or focus peaking, and when you tweak the focus ring you can get critical focus where you want really easily.
