lens is in good condition. The auto-focus works and the manual focus ring works, but the AF/MF switch doesn't work. This switch
normally turns off auto-focus when you want to manually focus on your
subject. Both AF and MF can be accomplished by setting the camera to use back-button auto-focus. The focus
ring can be used to adjust focus and the shutter release button will
capture the photo. When auto-focus is desired, just press the AF button
with your thumb and it auto-focus. Many people prefer this method
because the shutter release button doesn't change their focus setting.
