Tokina 80-200 f4.5 problem

Hello,

I just started using a Tokina 80-200 f4.5 lens for my Pentax k100d. I've encountered a problem with focus, it only shoots/takes a picture when I hear the "focus beep", but I of course want to decide 'with my eyes' when something is in focus or not. If the beep doesn't sound, however, it refuses to take the shot. Does anybody know how to fix this? I've tried the manual and everything but couldn't find an answer.

Thanks a lot in advance!

N.

Are you on MF? (button on the side of the camera body by the lens). If you are still on AF and you have catch-in (trap) focus settings on, then your camera will exhibit this behaviour.

Oh man, thanks a lot. I didn't even check, because I was almost sure it was on MF, been fooling around for about an hour! I feel dumb haha! Thanks a lot for the quick answer again!
