Sony a77 with Sony 70-200 f/2.8 G lens
Mar 17, 2014

I recently purchased a store demo of the Sony 70-200 G lens.  When it works it is awesome, but I'm finding that occasionally it refuses to focus.  It'll work fine and then "poof" stops focusing.  The only fix has been to shut the camera down, wait a few seconds, turn back on and try again.  This is no good!  I use this lens to shoot sports and don't have that kind of time!  I feel stupid to ask, but is it possible I have something either on the lens or the camera set up incorrectly which could cause this?  There was no paperwork sent with the lens for me to reference.

Also, I have the camera set to shutter priority, using AF mode on both camera and lens.  I'm sure I left something out so please ask about any other settings that may apply.
