I just turned in on, and\015\012it failed to focus (after 4 years of use). No drops or impacts..just turned it\015\012on. It has a quiet clunk sound once the lens it at full extension on start up.\015\012It is in focus at start up. If I move the zoom, it can not find the new focus position. I\015\012can tap the zoom a bit one way or another and (perhaps by chance) it finds the focus. I have tried\015\012manual focus. I can go from closest to farthest range in manual with no change in image focus at all distances. I have\015\012tried change from ESP focus to spot, still no luck. My guess is that the (very\015\012soft, just audible) cluck has something to with the intern focus mechanism. Any\015\012suggestions?\015

Dear Benjamin,
\015\012I also own an olympus c765 and was wondering how to use the manual focus option when I came across your post. Actually I have been wondering whether manual focus is of any use in an olympus c765 because the manual does not talk anything about it.
\015\012However, I just found out that there is a way of activating/deactivating manual focus. Here it goes:
\015\0121. Turn the camera on
\015\0122. Switch to any mode - portrait/landscape etc
\015\0123. Press and hold the 'OK' button on the centre for a second until you see a MF/AF option on the screen
\015\0124. Switch to MF and focus on any subject by pressing the up/down keys.
\015\012Most likely, your camera has been turned to Manual Focus option, which is why it is not focussing any more. Follow the steps above and turn it back to Auto Focus option and let me know if your problem gets solved.

My Olympus 740 digital camera does not auto focus any more. I can make it focus for the most part by zooming in, but is there anything I can do to make it start up focused? I had another Olympus camera model a few years ago that I had to send in to Olympus 3 times for the same problem.

Olympus SP-550 UZ won't focus properly most of the time. Focus point should be infinity since my subjects are seascapes, sunsets and clouds. I've tried all 3 AF focus modes but none work consistently. I can get it to focus sometimes if point the camera at the ocean first. I've even tried manual focus but it won't focus to infinity. This camera is practically new, has never been dropped. Is this a known problem with this camera? Is it a settings problem (I've reset the camera to factory settings

Focus Problem I recently bought Olympus C-750. The real problem i have with it so far is that when I point the camera towrds the subject, its focus is adjusted automatically and the subject looks very focused and clear, but when i press the shutter button, the camera re-focuses and makes the subject blurr and in the end pictures come out very blurry. Kindly help me out with that, i.e: do i need to do some setting to avoid that??? and plus i cannot find the manuual focus option in the camera.

I have the C740, which I believe works very similarly if not identically. Unless you have the camera in full time auto focus, I don't believe it actually focuses on the subject until you've pressed the shutter button half way. Until then, the subject ...

Lens Problem I have a C-8080 and I like it but I'm not sure if it is working 100%. The lens barrel is sloppy from side to side and clunks slightly when moving it quickly. It has been that way since it was new. It has some issues with auto focus as well. It has a hard time focusing on clouds and soft objects at infinity. I called Olympus when I bought the camera and mentioned the sloppy lens barrel and they told me that that is the way there made. It is slow to focus when going from close objects

The lens play is normal. The focus is not the fastest, which is a shame because the camera powers up instantly! There are techniques to minimize the focus lag if you choose to keep the camera (e.g. hyperfocal; pre-focus w/manual focus lock). Its a gr ... Olympus Camedia C-8080 Wide Zoom Digital Camera

In a studio environment with 5500K softbox lighting, using a tripod and AF on a portrait subject, with ISO 125 in Manual and Portrait exposure.

Is the auto-focus of the Olympus EP2 really that slow/bad? I've read that the due to the construction of the lenses, the auto focus is painfully slow sometimes. Has that been your experience? Has it hindered you at all?
