Direct manual focus (DMF)

You can make fine adjustments manually after performing auto focusing, letting you focus on a subject more quickly than when using the manual focus from the beginning. This is convenient in situations such as macro shooting.

  1. Turn the focus mode dial (A) and select DMF.

  2. Press the shutter button halfway down to focus automatically.
  3. Keep the shutter button pressed halfway down, and then rotate the front lens ring to achieve a sharper focus.

    • When you rotate the front lens ring, the focus distance is displayed on the screen.
  4. Press the shutter button fully down to shoot an image.


  • You can assign the focus function to the rear lens ring by selecting MENU (Camera Settings2) → [Lens Ring Setup].
