Is my brand new FZ200 faulty ? I can not get it to AF on anything


Just received my camera today and set it up.

I can not get it to focus on anything - the focus info goes green - but the image is still blurry and poor - i am for instance trying to take a picture of dog lying on the floor about 6 feet away -at minimal zoom the image is totally blurry - i have the barrel switch set to AF

I have the camera in IA mode for testing this

Also i note when i am on total wideangle i have a fishbowl effect that is visible in the LCD window - i would assume that this is not normal - and again the focus is completely out.

is there something basic i can test to see if this camera has a problem ?
