Center Focus Macro on RF 24-105 f/4 to f/7.1 IS STM useful or gimic?
1

Waiting for my RF 24-105 IS STM to arrive (for use on Canon RP).

The review mention that it has this new Center Focus Macro capability, as described in detail here: https://snapshot.canon-asia.com/id/article/eng/rf24-105mm-f4-71-is-stm-the-surreal-world-of-centre-focus-macro

Setting the RP to full manual focus it seems fairly straightforward; keeping it in AF mode but with 'single shot manual override' - setting the lens control ring to 'focus' mode and rotating it to the 'manual only' range, seems a bit complicated.

Experiences using this CFM capability? Is it just a gimic?
