The fruit in the G2 image is back focused.

What do you mean? I do not see any single piece back of the fruit focused.

In which case. Whatt's the benefit of fast focusing... If it is not focused?

But what about the first set?
Where these 1:1 crops?
And what about shutter speed, aperture etc.

Auto mode I suppose (read the OP), but who cares? The lenses were tested using the very same alpha camera.


It is in focus. The g2 is focused on the leaves in front. There is no way to tell if this is the lenses fault. If these are crops, it could be the person had the camera in wide area AF and handheld instead of on a tripod with a single AF point. The camera itself could have picked a different point of focus, not the lens. Also he noted some wind while testing so it is highly likely that the tree shifted after the camera focused. When you are working with dof that shallow, simple camera or subject movement will shift the point of focus.
