So, hi guys.

I just came home with my new Z2 after giving back my Z.

I downloaded the german ftf and the new flashtool for the Z2 and updated to this firmware.

I'm really not sure if this is related to the firmware update but I don't think so.

My issue is quite simple: the camera autofocus doesn't work. It just simply has a fixed focus (which works great for the near stuff but 100% fails for all other distances).

It's not a slow autofocus, it just doesn't work, the camera doesn't move, you don't hear any focusing noise. the camera button doesn't focus, tap on the screen doesn't focus.

Basically all my pictures and my videos have an amazing quality, but are all out of focus.

I googled around but looks like nobody has this issue. Is that fatal? Should I return it?

Xperia and almost all smartphones have digital focus
there s no special hardware for zooming
SO if you have problem in one feature of camera App do this;
- use another camera app : for example google camera and check if it can do auto focus
- install another firmware or just reinstall current firmware
- repair firmware by PCC
- after these IF sill thr s no auto focus >> take it to sony service

Autofocus and (digital) zoom are two different things.
