Problems 40-150mm

Just bought a recondisioned 40-150mm. It wont focus while in S-AF. It also knocks out other available AF modes when I start triing to find alternative. Then it magically clear itself. I was wondering if ether they might be aproblem or this lense doesn't operate S-AF. Has anybody else had problems with this lense?

Re: Problems 40-150mm


This will be small comfort but I used to use the 40-150 f3.5-f4.5 quite a bit and never had any problems with the lens on any AF mode.

Not sure about the newer, lighter kit version, though.
