Re: Odd G1X MK2 focusing quirk

It happened with me during the weekend in the club where the camera could not focus on 3-4 different people setup and within different locations in the club where the ambient light was very dim red and blue. The focus assistant lamp was on. I had to focus and recompose to get it working.

The same problem happened with macro with f2 setting when I was trying the camera at home when I first got it.

I understand that obtaining focus in low contrast subject and in low light is very difficult but I was not focusing on a plain wall, I was focusing on a friend's face.

This focusing thing may happen with certain batches and could be under very limited circumstances but it is happening, at least with me.
