    Ok so testing out the camera I've been using the AF, but it cant focus worth ****. Ill hold the button down it will just keep going back and forth and it won't let me take a picture because it's focusing.

    So I just turned on a light pointed it at my subject, it focused fine, turned the light off searching... searching... I've read reviews where people said their lenses hunted in low light.. Is this normal?

    it's normal. How can the lens focus on something if it can't see it?

    ;)

    Ehh.. there wasn't any reason to bring this thread up again.

    and trying to manual focus looking through the tiny viewfinder is a nightmare -.-

    but it works fine now, and a mod can delete this thread
