Autofocus problem LX5

I've had my LX5 for well over a year and have had no previous problems. Yesterday I aimed the camera at a distant but contrasty scene (that should have no AF issues) and it refused to focus (showing the red warning about distance range). Pointing at an object a few metres away gave me focus, but aiming at the original scene gave the AF failure as before. Turning off and on again seemed to resolve the issue, but later I had a similar issue when using AE lock. Normal operation thereafter.

Anyone else experienced this? The firmware is version 2 and all lens throat and other controls were OK.
