Guys i still notice that sometimes when i 'm trying to use the quickshift (In AF but when focus is confirmed i try to focus better) the focus is stuck and i have to turn it the other way to unstuck.. Is it normal?

I found a video with my issue..


If you want to see what excactly i mean skip to 1.35 . The difference is that i dont hear the sound the guy mentions when i m turning the focus ring and also this happens to me only 10% of the times(the stuck barrel inside).. My bigest concern is that this might be an SDM failure sign...

As I wrote in my reply to your PM, I don't have issues like that at all on my copy. And it's definitely not meant to behave like that! I assume you are in EU, if so just take the lens back and ask for new one or refund. If the lens is less than 6 months old they simply can't refuse to do that as the lens is obviously faulty, therefore not fit for purpose. Good luck

Thx Peter.. I hope it turns out well.. Im a bit concerned that the lens went to France for repair and back to Greece with this issue unfixed.. I hope they replace it...
