    Somehow, suddenly, when I half press the shutter button, my XT 10 doesn't AF.

    I need to press the AF-L button to get it to AF but I quite like the shutter to AF.

    I have been through the instructions but unable to find out how to return the shutter button to AF. Does anyone know?

    Accidentally moved the front switch to M?

    (Sorry if that suggestion should offend you – I have no idea how well you know your camera!)

    Thanks! It helped but then I couldn't use aperture priority. However, it did make me wonder about manual controls.

    After searching again, I did find the AF switch on the front had been switched to M. I pushed it to S and the shutter AF works. Feel happy now. That leads to one of my few gripes is that it seems a bit too easy to accidentally press buttons or move things on this camera.

    There is a Manual Focus indicator to the left of the Focus Distance scale in the viewfinder/LCD screen to show when it is in MF mode. (Page 71 thru 73 of your owners manual titled Focus Mode)

    Link: Manual Focus (Focus Mode M)

    Sorry, I thought that meant the top lever to A.! Very silly of me.
