[IMPOSSIBLE] Limit autofocus range
« on: March 22, 2013, 06:12:56 PM »
Not sure if this is possible, but could we limit how far the lens hunts during autofocus? This would be useful for slow lenses.

To clarify, it would be like semi-autofocus mode where you focus the lens manually at first and then use autofocus to make the smaller adjustments.

(Found someone else inquiring about such a feature here: http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=4502)

Some more expensive lenses like the 100L and 70-200L have a switch, and it surely would be nice to have it in software for the others (like my 70-300L) - but only if it's also possible to do it for non-lv mode, which I somehow doubt :-o
