Cannot manual focus lens - Help!

Hi,

just bought a A7Rii and 16-35mm GM lens but I can't get the lens to manual focus. I've flicked the switch to MF on the lens but the focus ring does nothing. Am I doing something wrong or have I got a defective lens?

If I turn the camera off then on and then turn the focus ring it puts me into magnify mode but it still won't manually focus. Once out of magnify mode it won't go back in when turning the focus ring.

Firmware is up to date

Pete
