Has anyone noticed autofocus not working sometimes when coming out of sleep mode? It's happened to me maybe the 3rd time ever this last weekend (so pretty rarely). I wasn't taking pictures for a bit and the camera self shut off (sleep), then when I pulled it up to take an image, it wouldn't focus and wouldn't shoot the image (since I have it set for focus priority). Pressing the shutter button down half way didn't work, so I tried the back button focus I have set and that didn't work either. I made sure the lens was still set to AF and it was. When I turned the camera switch off, then back on, AF was working normally.

Anyone else notice this?

Yup - have this often. Very annoying when you when you need to capture a fleeting moment. But if seems to recover after a few secs and I don't need to turn off/on

Hmm, i fiddled with mine for almost a minute and it didn't recover. Maybe next time I'll see if I just wait, if it works or not. Although if I'm in a hurry to get a shot, OFF-ON seems to be the quickest and easiest solution.

Gregg,
Just checked out your photo stream,,great pics from the auto show....nice and sharp...Didn't think the 24-105 would be that sharp.

Good job.

When taking pictures of a group of people, use a smaller aperture to get a larger depth of field so that everyone is in focus.

As far as what settings to use when you shoot... you use whatever settings you need to get the exposure that you want... Do you know how your camera works? A good book to read is "Understanding Exposure" by Bryan Peterson. If you haven't read it, you should. It is great.

What I find strange is when I attach the 100L macro to the camera and try focusing, the camera can't auto focus. I have to first manually focus and then it locks in. Is this normal? Never happens with other lenses.
