Re: A6300 and 2 native lenses no AF drive speed/tracking?

Visited a Sony kiosk today and showed the problem, one of the guys said it was very weird and started some tests with lenses and bodies used for the public. Then he wanted to upgrade the firmware and told me to come back in 15 min.

Once back there were other 2 reps trying to figure out the issue. The firmware update was ok but didn't solve it.

We figured out that with the camera on if we remove the lens and put it back all functions start to work. After few minutes of use or as soon as we turn off and back on the camera everything is again greyed out.

They have not confirmed if PDAF is working or not but I have used their a6300 and the AF seemed a lot quicker.

Ultimately it seems that the mount is defective at the contacts level and the camera needs to be sent in for repair. Now, irrespective if the guy selling me the camera was aware or not, the hope is that proof of purchase under someone else's name is accepted.
