First time this has happened since I took the body of the camera in to get fixed. They did find a problem, but NOW ... it's the lens.
So I got nuthin' out of spite and nasty moods over the weekend, and this was the last picture taken with the lens. Seems it really likes *grass more than people. So do I sometimes.
*it wouldn't focus or take a photo when pointing level/straight out at something, but to the ground, not a problem.
