Do I have a faulty Z 6ii or Z 85 1.8S?

Was able to replicate the issue in the shop on one of their Z 6ii bodies.

Seems when the Z 6ii wakes up, for some reason it thinks it's in AF / Focus point mode so while I'm madly spinning the command dials hoping for shutter and aperture etc to change, the cam is changing Focus mode or Focus point.

So far the new Z 85 f1.8 S seems to be OK.

I can change the Focus mode and Focus point using Fn 2 and command dials, and in (M)anual, change shutter etc using the command dials without issue.

Be interesting to see if mine develops the issue....

It seems rather unlikely that you would be unlucky enough to receive bad copies of two lenses. Could there be another issue like bad/dirty contacts?
