Sometimes, that lens hunts to make focus, especially when in the previous shot, the subject was far and in the new short, the subject is near. When it fails to make focus, I'd put the news in manual mode, make focus (roughly) and put back the lens in automatic-focussing mode.

Fortunately, the clutch mechanism where you pull the focus ring towards the camera to engage manual focus, should help a ton with this.

Yes, absolutely.

No need to go to the menu: we just need to pull the toggle ring, to make focus (roughly), and to push that ring. It takes three seconds.
