Please be aware of the below in regards to auto focusing:
Thank you for contacting RED Support.
From my own personal tests, I could never really get AUTO FOCUS to work reliably. I have brought this up to our engineering team and they are working to make improvements, but some of the issues have to do with the way the camera communicates with the lenses and requires a lot of engineering per lens an programming for this to be fixed.
Personally, I would recommend rack focusing manually as much as you can. It's nice to have the feature in-camera, but it seems to only work well on a small batch of lenses from our supported list. I can't recall which ones I have used in the past, but I do know it is sort of a hit or miss depending on the lens. I've also found that my images appear sharper when using manual versus auto. I only use auto as a focus assist to help get me close to being sharp, then manually adjust.
