What is automatic pixel mapping?

  • I also remember reading that the 16-50 lens is slow to retract on power-off. That's only the case when the camera is about to do a post power-off shutter release for automatic pixel mapping - it waits till that's been done before retracting. Otherwise it seems about as rapid as the power-on extension.

What is this process, "automatic pixel mapping"? How do you know it's happening (does it say so on the screen)?

You seem to imply that it doesn't happen every time the camera turns off - is that correct? What causes it to occur?
