Hi Phil, thanks for the info. on the lens release button

Have pressed the Lens release button then tried to focus, and as you say, it stops focus!

I may have been griping the camera to tightly to reduce shake, I have had no problems since. Hopefully that was the problem.

Many thanks:)

Set the camera to AF-C or AF-S, Group Focus or Matrix - something easy to see - now squeeze the lens release button and watch the AF information disappears in the view finder - meaning AF is disable - brilliant.  But we have to really squeeze the button to engage the release function, slightly squeeze or merely touch it makes no different.
