Two sub pixels calculates the lens drive required to acquire AF.  Take a look at the details of the patent translated below.

Google Translate Patent Details

A camera system 1 includes: first focus detection means for detecting a focus adjustment state by using phase difference; second focus detection means for detecting the focus adjustment state on the basis of contrast; determination means for determining whether the focus adjustment state is detected by the first focus detection means or by the second focus detection means; and focus adjustment means for performing focus adjustment on the basis of detection result of the focus adjustment state by the focus detection means determined by the determination means. When the focus adjustment is continued after the focus adjustment is performed by the focus adjustment means to complete focusing, the first focus detection means is used.SELECTED DRAWING

we are going to suggest you the name of some of the best top Nikon lenses available for the Nikon D3500 camera.

1. Best Standard Lens for Nikon D3500

D3500 camera 18-55mm kit lens is one of the best lens available for standard use. The lens gives very good output and highly usable for standard use. however, the lens do not perform very well under low light environment, so we have a recommendation for you from a third party maker and the lens features a constant F2.8 aperture throughout the zoom range, let’s have a look of our first recommendation.

2. Best All-rounder Zoom Lens

The Nikon 18-200mm lens is one of the best travel lens available for Nikon D3500,  the lens features very effective built-in VR system of second generation. Of second generation. The lens covers all your photographic needs, or you can say one of the best lenses available for travel shooters or those who want all-in-one solution.

But, you have to keep in mind that it’s a variable aperture lens. So, using this lens in poor lighting condition is bit challenging and you have to keep your eye in shutter settings to get the perfect shot and avoid blur caused by shaking up of hands or moving subjects.

Now let’s talk about what I like and don’t like about the lens

Now after using for a while what I have personally found that the Zoom tends to creep a bit. And the Zoom ring is bit stiff too, but that’s not a big issue for me.

Now due to excessive use of optics inside the lens you can feel the images are bit soft when captured at tele end with wide open aperture, so for that you have to lightly sharpen the image during post-processing.

Nikon 18-200mm lens AF is fast despite of having such a excessive zoom range. The lens AF and VR works very effectively.The chromatic aberration and distortion is also very well controlled.

3. Best Portrait Lens for Nikon D3500

Prime lenses are real lenses, when you talk about image quality and depth control, most of the time I use prime lenses for my work. Now, in this section we will talk about the best portrait lens for the Nikon D3500 DSLR Camera. The best lens that will give you excellent cinematic feel either you are creating a video or shooting a still shot.

Nikon 50mm F1.8G is the best lens ever made for an entry level camera like the Nikon D3500. The lens is affordable at the same time we are getting Fixed F1.8 aperture for shallow DOF. The price price of the lens is $ 200, so you cannot expect high grade body material or solid design quality from this lens but output of the lens does matches  with the premium class of lenses. Best lens for your entry level camera or to start your portrait photography career.

The Good

Sharpness of this lens is really just awesome, even at wide open aperture F1.8 the lens captures tack sharp images all the time. And the sweet spot of this lens is  f/5.6-f/8.  Chromatic aberrations and distortion are very well controlled, although you also get a lot of help from camera built-in lens correction tool. The bokeh of this lens is just awesome and super creamy, super perfect of a $200 price range lens. The lens is extremely lightweight and very easy to carry for longer if  hours of work. The focusing speed of this lens is quite fast and it focuses really very quickly on it subject. Like most of the Nikon lenses the 50mm F1.8G lens also offers manual focus override, so you can fine tune your AF adjustment if you want to.

The Bad (its okay)

Also one thing you should keep in mind is the crop factor issue. The 50mm lens will act as 75mmlens is APS-C crop sensor,  So, you will be getting a 75mm equivalent focal length on your Nikon D3500 DSLR camera.

Tokina 11-16mm F2.8 is one of the best ultra wide angle lenses available for Nikon D3500 DSLR. The lens also features constant F2.8 aperture throughout the zoom range. But why we are recommending a Non Nikon Lens to you, Since our intention is to give you best lenses in less cost.

There is very less barrel distortion present in the lens, which is of course a integral part of any ultra-wide zoom lens. But, other than this we haven’t found any issues with the lens in-terms of performance.,

The Bad

Ok now let’s talk about the autofocusing performance of the lens, the lens do have AF motor inside but is work with high-end Nikon DX series camera starting from Nikon D7xxx series or Nikon D500. The AF will not work with the Nikon D3500 camera and you have to do Manual Focus.

The Bad

The lens isn’t fully compatible with Nikon Fullframe DSLR camera and it features plastic mount which is of-course not so durable as Metal mounts. But, hey I am using that lens for review purpose for more than 3 months and used a lot of time. I haven’t find any issues with the plastic mount.
