How to disable lens "focus reset" on M6 Mark II?
1

My setup is an M6 Mark II with EF-M 32mm f/1.4 STM lens.
The camera is on a tripod pointed at a window bird feeder.
Camera focus switch on the back is set to [MF].

I manually set the focus precisely on the feeder. Video/Photo recording start and stop is done via wireless remote.

The issue is, when I power off the camera for the day, the camera "resets" the lens focus, even though it is set to MF. And at power-on, there is also some focus movement by the camera. This messes up the focus I had set, so I have to repeat the process again.

I've looked through the menus, tried setting "Retract lens on power off = Disable" (even though it doesn't apply to this lens), and tried using the Focus Mode=MF menu items instead of the switch.  None work.

Is there any way to stop this?  MF should mean MF in my viewpoint, but Canon doesn't seem to honor this.
