Sports AF: Custom Control Assignments

Custom Setting f1 (Custom control assignment) can be used to assign different roles, including focus-related functions, to camera controls such as the Pv and Fn buttons. Users of MB‑D17 battery packs can in addition use Custom Setting f10 (Assign MB‑D17 buttons) to choose the roles played by the buttons on the battery pack.

Lens Focus Function Buttons

You can use Lens focus function buttons to choose the role played by the focus function buttons when the focus function selector on the lens is set to AF‑L. For fast-moving sports, choose AF-area mode to enable rapid AF-area mode selection.
