"RE: Soft Focus - How About A Standardized Test ?"

Just to soften the tone here, I recently purchased, of all things, a so-called 'screwdriver focus' Nikon lens. The 12-year old design AF 80-200 f2.8. When I got it, the first thing I tried was shooting low-flying jets coming into an airport 1.6km from my house.

This was not the newer SWM focus where the motor is in the lens. But with a motor in the body. It was heartening to see how quickly and accurately the D7000/80-200 acquired focus. No hunting whatsoever. The planes were doing about 120mph. Blown up a bit, I could read the tail numbers of the planes on the images. Altitude was about 200 feet. Take that, Canon.
