I don't normally use manual focus but I belatedley thought of testing it as I got the lens for only AUS$180 although it looks mint and came with a hood thrown in.

All I get when attempting to manually focus is a snowy viewfinder with a green arrow on each side "10X" in the left corner and a square box in the rt corner. I'll hazard a guess that somehow manual focus is set to magnified and if it is, I have no idea how to turn it off even after trawling through the handbook and the menu. Other than that, the focus ring is surprisingly easy to turn with little resistance and I'm wondering if I bought a lemon?

Any ideas as to what I may be missing in the settings?
