Yo. Never got fixed. Its a simple mistake, but you also have this same mistake on other lenses by Rokinon and Samyang. Don't confuse the inclusion of a CPU with an autofocus ability. This lens handles like a Zeiss optic: Auto exposure but absolutely no autofocus.

The 85MAF-N does not have autofocus, but it does have "focus confirm", which, as I understand it, will allow your camera to evaluate focus with its sensors and confirm successful manual focus with a "beep".

Hi Belfastbiker, our mistake, this lens is a manual focus lens, we'll get that fixed up.

This site say this will autofocus, all other sites I've checked say manual focus only - any idea where the truth lies?
