[INSTANT AF] can be assigned to a function button, allowing the button to be used to focus on the subject in the selected focus frame. Choose this option for quick focus. Use h[BUTTON SETTING] > [FUNCTION (Fn) SETTING] to change the control to which [INSTANT AF] is assigned.
A variety of options are available for checking focus in manual focus mode.
The manual focus indicator indicates how closely the focus distance matches the distance to the subject in the focus brackets. The white line indicates the distance to the subject in the focus area (in meters or feet according to the option selected for A[SCREEN SET-UP] > [FOCUS SCALE UNITS] in the setup menu), the blue bar the depth of field, or in other words the distance in front of and behind the subject that appears to be in focus.
If both [AF DISTANCE INDICATOR] and [MF DISTANCE INDICATOR] are selected in the A[SCREEN SET-UP] > [DISP. CUSTOM SETTING] list, depth of field can also be previewed using the depth-of-field indicator in the standard display. Use the [DISP/BACK] button to display standard indicators.
If [ON] is selected for A[SCREEN SET-UP] > [FOCUS CHECK], pressing the button to which [FOCUS CHECK] is assigned automatically zooms the display in so you can focus with greater precision. Press the control a second time to change the zoom ratio and again to cancel zoom. The zoom display is centered on the current focus area. The focus area can be selected using focus-point selection. At default settings, [FOCUS CHECK] is assigned to the [Fn2] (function 2) button.
Use h[BUTTON SETTING] > [FUNCTION (Fn) SETTING] to change the control to which [FOCUS CHECK] is assigned.
Select [FOCUS PEAK HIGHLIGHT] for c[MF ASSIST] to highlight high-contrast outlines. When focusing, rotate the control ring until the subject is highlighted.
