NEX-5n focus sticks, not hunting
Sep 18, 2012

I'm having some issues with my NEX-5n and the kit 18-55 lens. The camera is brand new, with firmware 1.01.

When trying to focus closer than the minimum focus distance, the green focusing icon on the lower left keeps blinking, and the focus is unresponsive. Half- or fullpressing the shutter does nothing but bring up the normal icons on screen, and the camera does not even hunt for focus, it just sits there. It usually returns to normal in a few seconds, or turning the camera off and on.

I could foresee this being a serious issue in the future, when I need to get a quick second shot and the camera is stuck for seconds.

Has anyone else encountered this issue?
