Using Manual Focus Lenses, How to make Focus Indicator stay LID?

Dear All,

When using Autofocus lenses on the SLR/c, in Manual Focus Mode, the focus indicator will blink, stay lid and beep when it is locked in focus.

When using Manual Focus Only lenses on the SLR/c, the focus indicator will blink ever so slightly but not stayed on even when it is locked in focus. The focus indicator does not stay lid and blink only fractions of a second.

Using Manual Focus Lenses, How to make Focus Indicator stay LID like when we are using Autofocus lenses but in Manual Focus mode?

I found this little trick on how to make the focus indicator stay LID -

1. Mount an autofocus lens on SLR/c
2. Turn On Camera
3, Switch Lens to Manual Focus mode

4. Perform some manual focusing using focusing ring so that the autofocus idicator stay lid and beep
5. Turn off Camera
6. Unmount the autofocus lens
7. Mount the Manual Focus lens
8, Turn on Camera

9. Now when focus with MF lens, the Focus Indicator should stay lid permanent if the subject is in focus

Note - If you change battery, the above steps starting from step 1 have to be repeated.

I hope this works for you as it does for me. I am using firmware 5.4.9.

Hanh
