FZ200 - Not focusing?
Jan 3, 2013

I bought a FZ200 in October...so far, am very satisfied with camera.  However, last month I noticed that the shutter wouldn't respond if I held the camera vertically - no focus, no shutter release.   It was sporadic, and I wasn't able to replicate the problem on demand.   Then, on xmas morning, the camera wouldn't focus horizontally either...although the problem went away if I pointed the camera at a different subject further away.   This happens both indoors and outdoors, so I know it's not the light.

I assume I should send it in for repair, but want to just ask beforehand.

Thanks.
