Re: 14-35 hunting focus in low light

When I first had my E30 I was questioning whether it was faulty too until I realised it was because of the +MF that created that behaviour. It was rather disconcerting in situations when it didn't lock focus & take the shot but kept on hunting when I had giving up & lowered the camera (& the E30 isn't as quiet as the E-5) & then people would look to see what I was taking a photo of.

Yes, that is what I have found too which made me think it wasn't a particularly useful feature.
I fiddle with violins (when I'm not fiddling with a camera).
