There’s nothing more frustrating than to hear your auto focus lens motor winding up and down looking for focus. This is especially true with night photography. Here’s a video that explains why this happens and what to do to gain your focus in the dark.

As I mention in the video, to help secure the focus ring, once the lens is focused, use a piece of tape. I use MicroGaffer tape because it comes in small convenient rolls that are easy to carry in my pack.

Leave me a comment and let me know if you’ve run across this issue and what you did to get focus.
