You mean you can move the focus switch from an auto focus setting to manual focus setting but the shutter will not release until the focus is locked? The menu tells you the camera is in an auto focus mode when in fact it is physically in manual focus?
We are just asking question to help narrow down the issue.

When I shift the af/mf button on the left hand side to mf ,so i can manually focus, the camera stays in auto focus.

Have you tried removing the lens? Possibly the screw drive is a little tight in the lens.

Yes tried that thankyou, I have had the camera for quite a few years often changing lenses, maybe the camera is getting tired .

Does it act the same if you switch the camera body to MF?
Have you cleaned the contacts? (lens and camera)
Does it act the same with other lenses?
Have you offended any voodoo practitioners lately?
