Hi, new member, my first post and already asking for help! I am just changing from many years as a Canon shooter and received my EM1 mk3 yesterday, had a bit of time in the garden using auto focus, all fine. Today I have turned camera on and it is stuck on Manual Focus with the setting in A1 menu greyed out so I can't change. Obviously this is complete newbie user error but I have no idea what I have pressed or switched to do this, can any kind person suggest something please? I shall continue to hunt for a solution myself as well.

Which lens is on the camera ? Check the clutch on the lens ..........
Thanks Andy, the 12-100 PRO on but I have tried swapping lens and it made no difference.

Check that the manual focus ring on the lens is pushed forwards.
I love you!! Thank you for taking the time with an idiot, after many years with one system it is going to be a steep learning curve.

Not an idiot. This is actually one of the most frequent posts for new users of the lenses with a manual focus "clutch" feature with the focus ring. It is not intuitive if you are not aware of it. Have fun with the system!
