This is sad to hear. I hope you will find out what is going on!

Seems to be really that: sometimes, AF will just keep getting closer without any logic.

I verified with the 150-450 limited to 6m - infinite, on a plane : it focuses somewhat correctly, then immediately moves closer, until it hits the 6m distance.

In "normal" use on subjects around me, it works correctly - except when it hits this issue, randomly, but if it hits it on a specific suject it will be reproducible on this same subject/framing.

I noticed also sometimes, on a distant subject out of focus, it will not even try to acquire focus - but the AF points will show up where the object is and if I move they will follow ! (object is visible but blurred).

I tried with subject detection OFF but it's the same.

I think i'ts a case for support ...

Is it even possible to downgrade the firmware?

I found the file in my computer trash ... But no, it's not possible to downgrade.

I tried to just change the number in this link ... But no luck.

Hopefully someone will have the file.

Best,
