Re: Am I missing something?

It may be dirt on the focus sensor, I had to clean an E520 that had the same problem you are experiencing.

If you are prepared to have a go you remove the lens and then have to gently lift the mirror as you lift it a small sub mirror under the main mirror will appear it folds up under the main mirror so you have to hold it in such a position that you can gently swab it with a cotton bud soaked in alcohol or good quality lens cleaner. Then lift the mirror all the way and look into the body you will see a recess below the sensor try to use the cotton bud to clean the sensor in there, it's hard to see though, use a blower too to remove any dust but hold the camera face down so any debri falls out the lens space.
