Re: olympus e-510 wont focus

That sounds a bit odd. Has the live view AF button stopped working?

It sounds as if it is normal. This is from the manual:

Press the shutter button all the way down to focus and shoot.
• To focus in advance, hold down the AEL / AFL button and press the shutter button. The focus is locked when the AEL / AFL button is pressed.
• The image display on the monitor freezes as the mirror goes down during focusing. The picture you just took is briefly displayed on the monitor so you can check the picture.
