Maybe the AF is locked when damaged? So cannot manual focus properly?
Take the shot!
I think it's a "user problem" for the OOF..
Pretty sure the AF is not locked...cos when AF is on, it can focus only on the infinity side. When the AF is off, it won't focus, so with this I'm pretty sure that it's not the AF locked issue. But i hear alot of soft wire movement noise when I tried to focus it manually.
AF is really a nice to have when you want to take snaps (e.g. group photos, take and go shots)..May be looking for an upgrade (Tamron 17-50?) since the repair cost for the 18-55 will probably by ~$1xx...if it's <$60, might consider repairing it.
But to do the live view + check focus in live view zoom for every shot is really tedious...was hoping to get it repaired to get a replacement....really headache problem.
i aggahed the focus... with live view manually cause the af cannot work (too dark). dropped to f4, from 2.8, 1/15 sec at iso 1600
but i pulled my back muscle... cause i bend too low ==
