As a workaround - temporary or otherwise - you can set AF point selection to wrap around. You can then get to the AF points left of centre without too much trouble.

Custom setting a7.

This was one of those things I hear sometimes and thing "Gee, why didn't I think of that?" Great suggestion.

Yup, thanks SAkp - done that now - I recall wondering that focus wrap meant when I first  got the camera! Do you know if there's a image review wrap too? I can't find one.

Regarding the camera, that doesn't really sound to me like the sort of thing that's going to fix itself. And the idea of blowing canned air or contact cleaner into the switch, which might actually fix the switch, strikes me as too likely to make something else a whole lot worse.

I think you're just doomed to a service trip.


If I can find a review wrap I'll live with it.

This symptom is especially serious in that an individual displaying it never thinks of it as a sign of ill health but as proof of his/her strength. ...Friday, it is too late to save this culture--this worldwide culture...
