Manual Focus lets you adjust the focus by turning the ring on the lens barrel. To aid in critical focusing press the Focus Check button to magnify the center 50% of the display. While turning the ring you will see a yellow arrow point left or right - the direction to turn the focus ring to get the right distance. When you get it just right a yellow circle icon will appear. To assist manual focusing there is a One-Touch AF button (in the center of the AF/MF switch) to get you near the proper distance quickly.
