Lumix GF1 autofocus issue

So I ordered a MFT camera over the weekend, and had it overnighted, so that I can play with it and take it to a family gathering for this coming weekend.

My awaited Lumix GF1 with the 20mm kit lens came in yesterday morning, thanks to and FedEx. It felt awesome opening the box; unwrapping the accessories; and finally piecing together the lens and camera. A thing of beauty. That was, until…

I tried to take a photograph, and the autofocus started going bananas! Depressing the shutter button half-way sent the focusing motor into a cyclic frenzy trying to find something to focus on. Even when I took my finger off the shutter button it still continued to autofocus.

Since Early Onset of Night posted the viral pic, I’m sure you were thinking the same thing I was: mechanically separated chicken (left) totally looks like pulled taffy (right)!

Others are excited as well — some of the people waiting in line are from out of town!
