I drove over an hour to a location to shoot the sunset and for some odd reason, the Mavic would not focus at all. I kept clicking to focus and I even restarted my drone, but still did not work. Very dissapointed why it would not focus at all. (Yes I know how to focus I have used the Mavic 100+ times and have never had any problems until now)

Tell us more: what version of FW? Did you recently upgrade to GO 4.1.4 ? Is AFC set to on ? did you try to focus with the C1 button. Were you perhaps in manual focus mode ?

I've recently had this problem also.  I must admit I've only had my mavic for a week now, and I've only seriously started looking into the quality of photos/videos the last 2-3 days.  I noticed today I could not focus either manually or with af on.  I have the current fw.  I have calibrated the gimbal/imu/compass quite a few times.

One thing I have noticed, restarting my mavic seems to "refresh" the focus, it starts working, for a while.  I put a piece of paper with some writing in front of my camera and noticed the words were very clear, took off and flew around for a bit, landed after 10 minutes or so and tried the same test.  The words were very blurry, and using af/mf did nothing.  I could not get the words into focus.  Restarted my mavic and the words were crystal clear again.
