[CONTROL / FOCUS] Which one is Auto focus ? which one is Manual?
Asked by: Yu
Hi, the same ring can be used to control or to focus (manually). However, the camera has to be set in manual focus, for you to use the ring to focus. Otherwise, it will be used to control exposure, ISO, aperture, etc.

Asked by: Michael
Any EF-M lens will for with your M50, and any EF or EF-s lens with adaptor. This lens is a RF lens, which will never work with other cameras as it's designed to focus onto a sensor that sits a particular distance away from the rear element.

How do you manually focus this lens?

How do you manually focus this lens?
Asked by: Judith
To manually focus when using the Canon RF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens, you may set the Focus Mode in your camera to Manual Focus, then set the [CONTROL/FOCUS] switch built onto the lens to [FOCUS]. You may then rotate the control ring built onto the lens to adjust your focus. You can also press the [MAGNIFY] button (button of a magnifying glass) on the back of the camera to increase the magnification on the camera's LCD screen to assist your viewing during manual focus. If the camera is set to Autofocus and the [CONTROL/FOCUS] switch is set to [FOCUS], you should also have full-time manual focus override, allowing you to focus manually while the camera is still set to autofocus mode.
