Is it possible to map a button to toggle between AF and MF? The RF 24-240 doesn't have a dedicated AF/MF switch and I wanted to give focus peaking a try. The lens has MF override but I don't think that enables focus peaking. Haven't found anything in the user manual. The closest thing is to add MF to the My Menu tab.

If you set "Lens electronic MF" (AF menu, tab 4) to "One Shot->enabled", then focus peaking (if turned on in the AF menu, tab 2) will be activated if you override AF with FTM (i.e. turning the focus ring after auto-focusing).
At least it works with the RF 24-104 - I don't have the 24-240.


C&C always welcome

I'd have to dig through the manual but engaging Manual Focus (whether by a physical switch on the lens or a menu selection) does not instantly turn on focus peaking. Focus peaking must be enabled in the menu first, then you'll be able to get it every time you switch to MF.

Correct, I have focus peaking enabled in the menu.

Thank you, Michael. I will look at that shortly.

Hmm. I can't tell any difference between One Shot -> enabled and disabled. Both allow MF but neither show focus peaking. As soon as I change the Focus Mode to MF focus peaking starts.

I found a spot with a bunch of Black Skimmers. They were not fond of me getting to close to there babies though :-P Fast lesson on my part.

This is from the BrandX launch this week. Cape Canaveral Lighthouse in the foreground. This is about 90 or so exposures layered together . . .

Just did some testing with my lenses (unfortunately the 24-105 is the only RF I own):

  • RF 24-105: works
  • EF 100L: doesn't work
  • EF 35 IS: doesn't work
  • EF 100-400 II: doesn't work
  • EF-S 18-55 STM: works


WTF, Canon? I really don't understand this...

Thanks for checking. At least there is the option to change AF modes in the menu and My Menu makes it a easier to find. I just wish I could map something like the left end of the multifunction bar to toggle it. Oh well.

I came home and there was a new lens on the porch and 4 fawns in the yard.

Couple more. First 5 minutes I had this lens and missed focus slightly on this moment.

I have an EF 70-200 2.8 IS II and R just like yours. I cannot for the life of me see how the new RF is any better. This has to be one of the best pieces of glass Canon has ever built, and that covers quite a bit of ground. I wish somebody could show me where the RF is actually better. I just don't believe it. And I've never seen anyone on YT do a direct comparison. There's probably a reason for that.

I agree, I just picked this up used off ebay. I have one RF lens which is nice but this thing pops.

Are you saying that you're able to get focus peaking to work on some lenses but not others?

I haven't noticed this yet but I can give it a try.
