Error 61 on RX1R

My Sony RX1R stopped focusing with e61:00 flashing in the screen. I can confirm the Googled solution of brute force on the camera to fix the issue. It seems a couple of firm taps on the lens with your finger solves the problem (or the symptoms). It sure worked for me. The only other solution I know of is sending your camera off to Sony.

If this keeps up then soon, when you press the shutter release, you cameras computer will want to have a philosophical discussion with you about the reason you want to take that picture.

Aha, perhaps this is the reason for the hit-and-miss AF that often gives nice and sharp backgrounds to go with those blurry subjects. The camera simply knows better.

A bit more than 10 months later, my camera today gave the same error a second time. A couple taps, and the error was still there. A couple more taps, and it works again. I did not lose any shots this time, just a minute getting the camera running again.

And yesterday I had the error for the third time. This time the camera also indicated an almost empty battery (although it was almost full) while going through the error cycle. I had to repeat the tapping exercise 4-5 times to make the error disappear.
