A couple of R5 topics

Hello all,

I have a couple things going on with my R% that are annoying and was hoping for some help and to see if others have had anything similar.

1) On a few occasions, in stills mode, the AF has switched from servo to one shot, spontaneously, without any obvious inputs from me. I can see no explanation of this other than a software glitch. For my settings, I would need a button push and at least one one or two clicks on the dial, so I do not think this is something I am accidentally doing.

2) This one isn't a glitch, but it is pretty annoying. I had this problem in my dSLR days as well. When I remove a memory card, even with the power off, it defaults to write to the second card. This happens even when I return the card to slot 1 with the power off. So, before I start shooting, if I want to write to the CF Express, I need to go through the troubles of switching this in all the stills modes and in video mode.

I have my camera set to write to one card and overflow into the second. Is there a particular setting I can change that will eliminate this need, or am I stuck doing this forever?

Thanks in advance,
