I have made many efforts to focus at something that is far away (-> ∞) while using full optical zoom (x12), like the moon or even at other objects in daylight and my canon s5 just wont focus on them.
Even if i switch to manual focus (set it to ∞) and turn off the continuous AF setting. Still nothing. If i reduce the optical zoom (like 6x it can focus on those items that i want, but are now smaller of course).
Is this a matter of lens or what? Is this happening with other cameras too?
