In movie mode the WG-3 will NOT auto focus when zooming. It will zoom while shooting with the movie button though, however it will still not auto focus.

I haven't seen any documentation regarding auto focus in movie mode so I don't know if it's supposed to or not.

I had the WG-2 last year and returned it.........thinking the WG-3 would be better I wanted to try it. So far, not as good as I had hoped.

I also tested my Sony HX5V inside the house and then aimed at a bright window.............it adjusted to the outside light where the WG-3 had a complete wash out, so bright I couldn't make anything out.

The movie performance will be a deal breaker for me.............

The WG-3 manual says "You can use the optical zoom and autofocus functions while recording movies when [Enable Autofocus] (p.118) and [Enable Optical Zoom] (p.118) are set to ☑ (On) in the [ Movie] menu. However, operation noise is recorded in the movie."

Did you enable AF and optical zoom?
