It was the only lens I can get my hands on with a wider focal length.
I was trying to take some test shots. I need to get used to manual focus, as my 50mm was always on auto focus.
First tried pulling focus and released the shutter using a monopod. Then was trying test shots hand-held, it was my intuition and I was having the shutter release half pressed and I was focusing manual. The focus point blinked the way it would when the lens is in auto focus. I tried the same with a different subject, the red focus box blinks when the focus was reached.
I then switched to my 50mm, turned to manual and tried the same.
- Half press the shutter release
- Manual focus
- Red box blinks on achieving focus.
Yaay, now I can pull focus without the fear or a blurry image :)
Hope this helps someone, in the same situation I am in. Happy Clicking :D
