A note to psperl, set your camera to have DMF enabled (direct manual focus) and set the focus aid to the one you want, zoom in and/or focus peaking, and when you tweak the focus ring you can get critical focus where you want really easily.


Wow this lens is serious.  The front lens is massive and you can get lost staring directly into it.

I can't enable DMF.  Any idea as to why?  I've upgraded the lens and body to the newest firmware.  I am shooting in one of the PASM modes with selection AF, focus peaking, and no MF Assist Zoom.  The manual doesn't say why DMF would be grayed out.

Sorry if this is a dumb question, but 15 minutes of flipping settings and I can't get it.
