I was surprised Canon USA support does not offer an online manual for this lens. What does this do? It look there is a setting under it.

Took me several tries via support to verify I did not miss it. I choose this way to look for other manuals. Thanks for the other link.

The button is for focus preset. What you do is focus on your subject and press the button. This stores the distance in memory. Then you can focus on other subjects. When you want to instantly come back to the first distance press the button.

The white ring between the 2 rubbers, twist that to get the lens to focus at the preset distance, set by the small white button.

This is a lens I have been eying for years. For my style of shooting its perfect. Very tempted to get one this year over a 500F4

Thinking about some big changes. My interests have changed and based on this current trip I'm not sure I need a FF and 24-70 II as a walk around anyone. I had great results with my two STM lenses and 7D2 last year. The 18-55 is pretty awesome regarding IQ not to mention it's light.

Since birding/wildlife is 80% of my shooting thinking of maybe something like an M50 for land/city scape one dedicated DSLR and longer lens/s for the other stuff. Gonna think about it when I get back.

I have a 70-200 2.8 II I barely use and with high ISO capabilities these days I could easily shoot sports with the 100-400 II. I'd really miss my 24-70 II but not shooting events and portraits anymore so not sure how much I really need it. There is a member at FM who uses Fuji as a walk around and Canon for the rest.

And I'm not getting any younger.
