Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
Have you tried pressing the Shutter button half-way down first, allowing a moment for it to focus, then pressing it down all the way, taking the picture in focus?

(- I presume you have the camera in AutoFocus mode... please correct me if I'm wrong on this assumption.)

it delays focusing
Camera and Video Technician: Russell H., Service Tech replied 7 months ago

Perhaps the camera is defective... tell me, how long does it delay focusing, and does it do this with a different lens assembly also, or only with one lens assembly?
