70-200 VR1 focusing problem
Aug 29, 2012

I just got a (second-hand) copy of a 70-200 f/2.8 VR1. Beautiful lens, I love it but... it won't always focus after it's focused at minimal distance. If I focus closely, it 'slams' into focus but won't focus further after aiming at a more distant subject. If I twist the focus ring to a larger distance, AF works fine. It doesn't happen every time but it's quite annoying. Is this a known issue? Is there something that can be done about it?
