A few days ago, I swapped bodies on my birding setup, removing the E-M1 and attaching the X-T2.  In the dim light of my "blind", I failed to note that I had not set the front selector of the X-T2 to "M".

Ah, I can relate. The Sony RX10 IV has a focus mode selector switch on a lower front corner. Ridiculous place. And FIVE choices, three of which are a complete mystery to me. Only screwed me up once - so far.

While I could focus on the tilt screen, it was not as sharp as I would like.  Today, I reviewed the manual, and set the selector to M, which enables a clear red in-focus area.  Here is an example of what the old Telyt + Extender can produce.  Can be viewed large.


OH, goody. I was wondering about the difference between shots like the soft Cardinal on Iron and the well focused Jay on Iron.
