    I'm having an issue where my Pocket 4K will rack focus automatically when switching from playback mode to record mode, leaving your composition out of focus. This is very annoying when you have the camera locked down and your focus is set. I have the current 6.1 firmware, am using a Canon 16-35mm F4 IS (with the switch set to MF!) on a Metabones Speedbooster XL .64x. Anyone else having this issue and a solution? On a related note, the autofocus feature and Bluetooth+ app focus don't seem to work, either.

    Thanks!

    The camera is doing pretty a soft reboot when changing from Record to Playback and back to record. This may cause some AF lenses to reset focus to inf., or change an autoficus position. The original Pocket to reset MFT auto lens to inf when doing the soft reboot.
    Cheers
