Can I zoom in, lock focus, then zoom out and keep focus?
Mar 11, 2012

I'm legally blind so seeing the focus point on an eye is next to impossible, even more-so outdoors, here is my question.

Lets say I have a 70-200 lens and I want to take a picture at 100mm, can I zoom to 200mm, half press my shutter to lock focus, then while holding down my shutter button zoom back to 100mm and take the picture?
