❚❚ The Electronic Rangefinder
If the lens has a maximum aperture of 
f/5.6 or faster, the viewfinder focus 
indicator can be used to confirm whether 
the subject in the selected focus point is 
in focus (the focus point can be selected 
from any of the 11 focus points). After 
positioning the subject in the selected 
focus point, press the shutter-release button halfway and rotate 
the lens focus ring until the in-focus indicator (
I) is displayed. 
Note that with the subjects listed on page 76, the in-focus 
indicator may sometimes be displayed when the subject is not in 
focus; confirm focus in the viewfinder before shooting.
Selecting Manual Focus with the Camera
If the lens supports M/A (autofocus with 
manual override) or A/M (autofocus with 
manual override/AF priority), manual focus 
can also be selected by setting the camera 
focus mode to MF (manual focus; 
0 74). 
Focus can then be adjusted manually, 
regardless of the mode selected with the
