This gets kinda confusing because it depends on how your buttons are configured.

To get what you asked for, configure the AF-ON button to AF-OFF (yea, I know). Then, when you press and hold the AF-ON button, it will turn off AF and turn on MF with highlighting. If you keep the AF-ON button pressed when you press the shutter button, it will take the picture without auto focusing.

To see a distinction between the 1st and 4th option, configure the shutter button to meter only (no AF) and set the AF-ON button to 'meter and AF'. Now the behavior should be as follows:

1. Allow MF until you press AF-ON

2. Allow MF, then when you press AF-ON, it auto-focus and turns on highlight

3. Same as 2 but magnified

4. No MF until you press AF-ON, then it behaves like 2.

I'm going to go back and confirm this again. I'll update my post if it needs correction.

I should point out that I have an RP, but the menu options appear to be the same.
