FZ200 - More Squirrels
With a little break in the weather, the squirrels have come out. Shot these from my third floor deck in my condo.
Had an odd experience when I got the camera out and started taking these shots. THe squirrel was up in a tree when I first saw him and fairly distant. So I got out the FZ200, mounted the hood, turned on the camera, and immediately went to full zoom (600 mm). The camera refused to focus!!! I backed off on the zoom a little, to maybe 500 mm and the AF locked right on. When I went back to full zoom, the AF was OK. This occurred a couple of times on our cruise where it refused to focus at full zoom right after turn on. It has not occurred at other zoom settings.
