  • Yes, if I put the lens in manual focus mode and move the focus from minimum to infinity many times over, and then switch to Auto Focus, the AF will occasionally work. But this is hit and miss. SO ...
  • Thanks for the info that the lens does not have a motor for AF. When I push the lens in Auto Focus position, I can turn the focusing ring slightly in either direction and then I hear it click into ...

    Thanks you all for the replies!
  • Created discussion thread Pentax Kp Grip
