    Has anyone else noticed that their iPhone 4 camera has a lot harder time focusing after the iOS 5 upgrade?

    I use my iPhone 4 for recording a lot of video (my kids sports mostly) - and I noticed a *significant* difference. It is very frustrating.

    Now to be clear, once you start recording, the focusing seems OK. But the camera app refuses to start recording until it has a focus lock, and that can take up to a second after the record has been tapped.

    Am I the only one seeing this?

    I've noticed this too on my 3GS running iOS 5. Definitely frustrating.

    Apple wants you to buy 4S.

    It's really annoying.
