Manual focus 20D
Jun 3, 2005

Hi - I am using a totally manual lens on my 20D. I remember to stop down before I take a shot (most times anyway!) but I'm finding it difficult to focus because of the small viewfinder. Obviously the autofocus system will not work but I wonder if the focus assist light should work - the red square(s) when the indicated area is sharp like in autofocus - or the green spot. Should it work? or is there a setting that I should use to turn it on? -

I'm in full manual - It says in the manual that when manual focussing the focus confirm spot should light up - I wonder if it only works when using autofocus lenses.

Thank you in advance for any advice
