Tonkotsu Ramen: Is it possible to have the camera turn on with a set focal length? vs having 24mm as the beginning FL then having to change it afterwards?

If the Mk3 works the same as previous versions, focal length gets saved when you create a custom/user settings entry. So if one of your three customs settings has the focal length at 50mm-equiv, you can get to 50mm by putting the mode dial to MR, then selecting that particular custom bank. Bizarrely, if you leave the camera on MR when you turn it off, then if you turn the camera back on with the mode dial still set to MR, the camera will restore the FL (and exposure settings) you were using when you turned the camera off.

Dale Cotton: What is the significance/function of the middle number in the Focal length column? For example: 19.82 in Examples 1,2, and 5? Thanks!

Thanks! Makes perfect sense.
