    Hi all,

    I just bought a brand new Sony SEL-20F28. Strangely enough it won't autofocus - or even manually focus - on my Nex-7. All my other E-lenses focuses perfectly on my Nex-7 (which has the latest firmware installed). Is the lens broken or is there a setting that I have missed?

    Thanks for any advice!

    Best,
    Erik

    I don't have this lens, but I never have seen a post like yours, try to return or exchange it if it is not working. You can try another copy if they have it. Even FF FE lenses work on nex-6 w/ contrast af w/o any firmware update.

    Thanks Serhan,
    yes, I suspect the lens to be broken actually. Just seems weird. Never happened to me before. And I've bought some lenses, both new and used, in the past.
    Cheers,
    Erik
