    Hi Eoghan,

    Are you still doing camera repairs?

    Make: Panasonic

    Item: Lens

    Model: Lumix G X Vario 12-35mm F/2.8 (bought in 2014)

    Fault: The lens autofocus is faulty. I can sometimes get it to work for a couple of shots but after that it won't focus at all.

    When/how it happened: No particular reason. It didn't get a shock or anything. 

    Any help or advise would be grateful. The camera is a Lumix GX9.

    Lens Sigma 70-200 F.2.8

    Focus is inconsistent. It did get a belt of hurl (accidental I hasten to add)
