This bee looks almost cute and cuddly, like a mammal.

I just fitted my Canon MP-E 65mm f/2.8 1-5x Macro Lens to the Canon EOS R to check if the Focus Guide (AF2 Tab Menu) works and indeed it does. This is a really useful function in the EOS R AF set up, providing a "Green in-focus" indicator in the viewfinder when the subject under the selected AF point snaps into focus.

The MP-E 65 is a manual focus only lens and can go from 1:1 to 1:5 by rotating the “zoom” ring which extends the barrel from x1 to 5x magnification. This rotation is quite coarse, so you have to be careful to get the sweet spot for the “Green in-focus” Indicators, you can easily over/under shoot, especially at x2 and above.

A macro rail would likely help make this a smoother action.

Cheers

Dennis

Sounds like what some call focus peaking. And that should be very useful as you say, especially for hand-held shooting. When on a camera stand and rail, I use Live View.

I would liken it more to Rangefinder or Split Screen Focusing in that there are 2 (dynamic) White Triangles either side of a central (static) sharp focus White Triangle and as you reach best focus, the 2 outer Triangles merge and display as Green along with the AF Point Square.

Here are a couple of screen grabs from a Canon EOS R video.

#1= Out of focus
#2= In focus

Cheers

Dennis
