Something I've noticed...

I have a D70 with the included 18-70 lens.

The auto focus works great IF the lens is set to around 25mm or greater. Choke it all the way down to 18mm, and the AF really struggles (often refusing to get a focus lock at all).

Took me a while to figure that out. Its an easy thing to work around, but it has me wondering.

Is this normal behavior?
