Michael Shainblum gives examples here of a bunch of test footage showing how the new DJI Mavic Pro focuses. The initial confusion with a lot of reviews so far is that users were not told outright that they had to tap the screen on the controller to focus the footage. This is mainly because no other DJI drone requires this action. It's not a huge deal really. People are just confused.
I cannot wait to get my hands on this.
