K7 question: AF button does not lock AE when configured to do so
Jun 25, 2010

Hi,

On my K7 in P mode when I configure the AF button to lock AE (C2.13 set to Cancel AF) with AF button lock enabled (C1.5 ON) it will not lock AE in AF-C (AF is locked with the AF button pressed but not exposure). However the AF button will lock AE in AF-S.

When I switch to Av, Tv or TAv mode AE won't lock in either AF-S or C.

I've tried all the above with and without setting AE to link to AF point in multipattern (and meter lever is set to multipattern).

I was hoping I could leave camera set to AF-C full-time and press the AF button to lock everything (AE & AF), simulating behavior of AF-S & half-press.

What am I overlooking?

thanks,
Fred
