C S M switch operation in M mode
8 months ago

Probably a stupid question but wondering if i am missing something here:

is there anything different to using the body switch in manual mode to switching the lens to manual mode?

Seems to me its more logical to use the switch on the lens ( which is more visible ) if they have the same functionality.

If the idea is to have a switch accessible while using the viewfinder, i get the idea, but don't find that so easy to use.

I do recall being on a hiking trip in NZ with a fellow who accidentally put the switch into manual and spent a whole day thinking his lens was stuffed. I had my D300s at the time and would have fallen for the same problem.
