I bought an A2 recently, and have it set for full-time autofocus, but it doesn't seem to do anything. I can change where it's pointing from some far-away object to a close object, and nothing happens. Am I missing something? Is this a known problem? (I've tried with the grip sensor both "on" and "off".) It autofocusses fine when i half-depress the shutter button...

I thought I had this problem when I first got my A2. I thought that the handgrip wasn't working, or that there was a fault with the AF. I was trying it inside the house, late at night. When I tried it during the day it worked fine.

It appears that the fulltime AF won't switch on in low-light conditions, if I take it somewhere bright then as soon as I place my fingers on the handgrip sensors, it starts to focus. Same with the EVF sensors if the A2 is on a tripod.
