If the suggestion that all recent batches are affected, it will be better to return it and wait for Sony to fix the bug.

As reported on FM and DPR all samples with sn 180xxxx have been ok, but about 50% of samples with sn 181xxxx have been bad. When using AF-S, the camera focuses wide open and the stops down to shooting aperture and the resulting photo is very much out of focus if a aperture outside of f4 is used. Using AF-C the camera focuses at shooting aperture and the problem will not manifest itself.

Thank goodness. Received my third copy today and all is great! Glad to put that behind me and start enjoying my new (and working) 24-105mm lens.

Can you post the serial number, lovehifi? I'm wondering because a new batch is showing up on Amazon and B&H (and presumably others.) I'm wondering if yours is from this new batch, and what the serial numbers might be.

 Here is a Sony link to see if your 24-105mm is affected. Just punch in the SN. https://esupport.son...p_project_id=18
