EM5 mark2 S.AF / MF

Hi
I have an urgent query!
I am currently borrowing an EM5 mark2. The camera is flipping on it's own between S.AF and MF! Then gets locked in MF and the viefinder is blank!
This happens no matter which lens I put on it.

Advice urgently needed as I need this for a job this Saturday.

Thanks!
Sisi

Not a problem I've encountered with mine. Sounds like it might be a Portugal job. I assume if you're using a 12-40 or 40-150 that you're not inadvertently switching from manual to AF on the lens.

Thanks for your reply.

I may have solved it by doing a camera re-set. I hope. Fingers crossed!

Thanks.
