Step 6: Enable (or Disable) Autofocus

To turn autofocus [ON] or [OFF], click the [AF] button. If [ON] is selected when you click the shutter-release button in Step 7: Take Pictures, the camera will focus before the shutter is released. Use the camera to adjust autofocus-related settings. The shutter cannot be released if the camera is not in focus.

  • To disable autofocus, switch the [AF] button [OFF].
  • Autofocus is not available when the camera is in manual focus (MF) mode. To focus using autofocus, select an option other than MF as the camera focus mode.


Removing the lens from the camera or attaching a non-CPU lens automatically switches the [AF] button [OFF], disabling autofocus.
