When hand holding the lens and using the optical viewfinder, the auto-focus is pretty accurate too. I did however need to work on my hand holding technique. At first I thought the lens was back focusing, but after some practice with my hand holding technique, I found the lens works fine. I was just moving too much and ignoring the focus confirmation. Once I slowed down, relaxed, and made sure the green dot was visible, my hand held viewfinder shots got much clearer.
This lens will hunt in dimly lit conditions. When light is good, I find it to focus quickly and accurately. I also found that with practice, it hunts less than when I first got it.
Overall I'm happy with my purchase!
This one is a worthy replacement. It's quite simply an absolutely wonderful lens. That it's sharp and constrasty and has all the other optical goodnesses doesn't need saying. You expect that. But it's also a joy to use. The focus ring is precise (not always the case with lenses these days). It's well-sealed. On a D810, it's well-balanced.
I have the 70-200 f/2.8 and this lens of course falls within that focal length range. But I find myself mounting this lens and "zooming with my feet" more than I expected to.
Definitely worth the purchase for capturing tiny toes & perfect features. I'm by no means a "micro" photographer, but it was exactly what I was looking for in quality for newborns.
