Re: Info on shot-to-shot speed would be greatly appreciated.

Is the SX40's failure to lock in AF, a common flaw? I ask only because I recently experienced what might be this very situation. I was atking a lot of fall foliage shots last week, and noticed that a few, maybe 6 or so of many shots taken, were not in focus. In fact, nothing in the shot was in focus. It prompted me to inquire right here in Canon Talk to see if it might have been me, or the camera. This never happened before; and I have used this camera quite a lot.
So is this the start of something worse? Or just some randon occurance?
