Canon - RF 24-240mm stuck on MF

Hi... This morning I fetched the Canon R7 with the attached RF 24-240mm lens. Noticed the power button had been left on from when using the camera a few days ago. I sometimes forget to turn the cam off, but no problems before doing this. Camera battery is fine.

But anyway, the cam/lens is stuck on Manual Focus. I tried another lens... RF 100-500mm. No problem. Auto Focus is fine. With the RF 24-240mm I've tried the R7 AF-ON button, the Focus/Control setting on the lens, A+ camera setting, turning the camera off and on, taking the lens off then back on, taking the battery out and putting it back in... the lens refuses to do anything but MF. Any ideas or suggestions?

Thanks much, Steve

Well... That was it! There was an AF/MF switch on the front. And it was on MF. Take a bow! Thanks for noting this. Steve

Some R-Series camera bodies have an AF/MF switch on the front of teh camera body.

There's a setting in the camera menu to disable that AF/MF switch on the camera body if you want to use it. Look in the yellow Setup menus
