VG20 and kit lens problem

Hi there

I just got the SEL18200 lens off ebay for my VG20, but manual focus does not seem to work. I can only focus with AF.

Is there something I'm missing? Is there another way of switching to manual focus, other than the little focus button next to the sd card slot?

Many thanks

Emil

Touching the focus button does not help at all. I can see the camera going in manual mode (showing the small hand icon) but nothing happens when I turn the focus ring.

Do you think the lens might be defect?
