    Not that I want to use it but, I thought I'd give it a go.

    Gears > A > AF Mode > Full-Time AF > ON.

    Nothing happens, still have to half press shutter button to focus.

    Am I missing something, or have I set something that won't allow F-T AF?

    I'm not using a Four Thirds system lens.

    This has been suggested..........Half press to start, then release - camera continues to AF (no target frames) until you fully press the shutter....... but does not work.

    I'm not alone, I know of one other who has the same problem.

    as I corrected, you don't need the half press to start - it continually looks to focus slowly and silently in S-AF mode (haven't tried C-AF as you have more controlled ways of achieving this function in that mode)

    the 'other one' has resolved via some changes in his settings - but hasn't posted what!
