K5 + DA*16-50 Focus swith?

Hi,

I got a DA*16-50 with my K5, while I was shooting last weekend, I found that some time if I switch the lens to Manual focus, the shutter won't fire. I have to switch the camera to Manual focus (on the camera body) to shoot in manual focus mode.

It happens several times, but not all the time -- should I send the DA*16-50 back?



Thanks,
Lee

I think if the camera was in AF-S mode, it would fire only when the focus was obtained even in MF mode.

Oh... yes, the camera is in AF-S mode. got to confirm and reproduce this again -- no wonder it fire some time and not all the time.

Do you have catch-in focus enabled?
