German term or phrase: Objektivtubus/Tubus
Hello! I'm translating a review of a digital camera. The client provided a vocab list but I'm short if a few! Thanks for your help.

Den größten Teil der Kamera nimmt zylinderförmige Objektivtubus ein,

Der Objektivtubus des optischen 6-fach-Zooms (entspr. 35-210 mm bei Kleinbild) ist ein Tubus im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes:

Explanation:

"I try to first focus against an object about as distant as the fireworks would be when it explodes. With autofocus cameras and lenses, the infinity point for distance normally is not the moving endpoint of the tube — the lens defocuses again as the AF motor needs space for interval halfing."

=

"Ich versuche zuerst, auf ein Objekt zu fokussieren, das gleich entfernt ist wie das Feuerwerk zum Zeitpunkt der Explosion. Bei Autofokus-Kameras und -Objektiven ist die Unendlicheinstellung für die Entfernung normalerweise nicht der eine Anschlagpunkt des Objektivtubusses — das Objektiv defokussiert wieder, weil der AF-Motor den zusätzlichen Raum für die Intervallhalbierung benötigt."


"Objektiv" = "lens"

"Tubus" = "tube"
