Re: E-30 AF settings for CAF
In reply to CollBaxter, Nov 9, 2012

Thanks for all the advice and feedback.  I've been trying the combo out at nights indoors, so AF is challenging to start with.  Here some observations.

I reset the camera settings as suggested.  Without making any changes, except to switch the AF Area and between CAF / SAF.  I noticed that with CAF on a static object, it will hunt, as someone had mentioned, so CAF may be out of the question.  SAF seemed to work well, though, the AF motor doesn't seem to kick in until I have the shutter halfway (or AEL held in mode 3) for 1/2 - 1 sec.  The delay is a huge problem.  I can live with SAF, if it can focus fast.

Is the AF delay a common problem?  Or do I have a defective camera?
