    Hi… so I think I inadvertently touched some dials on camera and can't get the camera to auto focus when I depress shutter. Very embarrassing… went through menu…Custom Menu and made sure the AF/MF is switched to on…and saved it by hitting OK. Is there something I need to do to lens…what is the L-Fn button on the lens for? Thanks so much for any help…really frustrated that I can't figure it out.

    If using the 12-40 check the manual focus "clutch" ring on the lens (quite a common problem): push it back to get AF.
    The Fn button is just a function button that you can assign to what you want. Don't remember the default mapping, maybe DoF preview or magnify.

    What lens are you using? Does the lens have a pull back clutch mechanism to enable manual focus? Sounds like you might've done that.

    Don't feel bad. I did the same thing. Took me a few seconds to remember about the focus clutch ring. :)

    It took me over one frustrating week to figure out about that bloody manual clutch ring!

    I don't think you need to hit 'ok' just depressing the shutter button exits and saves ... and I still regularly have a 'doh' moment with the manual clutch ring

    It's a feature, not a bug! :)
