Thread: AF issues..

  1. #1

    Default AF issues..

    Hi Csers, I had a couple of encounters with failed AF after continuous shooting for awhile. The AF simply stop working for a while, but after resting the cam for a few minutes it recovers..

    Is this normal?

    100 clicks in a day is not too much. I've done >1500 clicks in one day on my dearly departed D5000 with the sigma 150-500mm during a birdwatching trip and didn't see any problems. You might want to get the camera and lens serviced. The only trouble I had was with the OS of the sigma lens hitting the limit, so had to be switched off and back on.
