Coolpix 2100 autofocus

    My daughter lost our Nikon Coolpix 2100 while on vacation. We really
    liked it, so I bought another one on eBay. On our old one, when you
    push the button half way down the camera focuses and then the AF LED
    lights. On the used one I just bought, nothing seems to happen when
    pushing the button half way down, but when pressed all the way down,
    the camera focuses, the AF LED and flash LED come on briefly, then it
    takes the picture. It takes nice sharp pictures, but I was wondering
    why it acts differently than my old one. Mid-model production change?
    Defect? Set-up differently (not likely)? As far as I can tell,
    because of the way the new one works, I can not use the focus lock
    feature that I had on my old one.

    Thanks,
    Paul

    Your old one was working correctly, but the one you found on ebay isn't.
