So you try and autofocus at an object 2m away or on the horizon. What happens?

Thanks! In both AF and MF it seems that the focus stops after about 1m while up to a few cm you can see the focus moving (this obviously with manual focus).

In macro mode it all works from macro to infinity. OK that sounds good.

Yes, the switch in Macro mode unlocks the focus at distance

When Infinity set, your photos are not focussed at infinity?

Yes

Snap mode does not work? In what way is it not working?

The pics are blurry

In manual mode you cannot focus beyond a certain distance? You are saying that the focus no longer moves after a certain point? What are the distances it will move through until it stops? How are you focussing in manual mode?

With manual focus the lens focuses only up to about 1m then freezes

Battery. How long is the camera lasting before the battery goes flat? Maybe it is long enough for a firmware update?

40/50 pics

Firmware version. This should have no effect on focussing, imo. I have firmware version 1.51 and it works fine. I don't see any harm in updating it though, but it would be good to have a greater udnerstanding how focus is failing.

Mine it's 1.16 firmware
