Focus Mode
Focus mode is controlled by the 
focus-mode selector on the front of 
the camera. There are two 
autofocus (AF) modes, in which the 
camera focuses automatically 
when the shutter-release button is 
pressed halfway, and one manual 
focus
 mode, in which focus must be adjusted manually using the 
focus ring on the lens:
Choose single-servo AF for landscapes and other stationary 
subjects.  Continuous-servo AF may be a better choice with 
erratically-moving subjects.  Manual focus is recommended when 
the camera is unable to focus using autofocus.

Description
S
Single-servo 
AF
Camera focuses when shutter-release button is pressed 
halfway. Focus locks when in-focus indicator (
I) appears 
in viewfinder, and remains locked while shutter-release 
button is pressed halfway (focus lock).
 
At default settings, 
shutter can only be released when in-focus indicator is 
displayed (focus priority).
C
Continuous-
servo AF
Camera focuses continuously while shutter-release button 
is pressed halfway. If subject moves, camera will engage 
predictive focus tracking (
0 91) to predict final distance to 
subject and adjust focus as necessary. At default settings, 
shutter can be released whether or not subject is in focus 
(release priority).
M
Manual
(
0 99)
Camera does not focus automatically; focus must be 
adjusted manually using the lens focus ring.
 
If maximum 
aperture of lens is f/5.6 or faster, viewfinder focus indicator 
can be used to confirm focus (electronic range finding
0 100), but photographs can be taken at any time, 
whether or not subject is in focus.
