Ensuring remarkable agility for faster shooting even when sudden shutter opportunities arise, users can also swiftly change the settings either from the control ring or through a dedicated focus mode switch that allows for manual focus operation to achieve smooth focus transitions. The buttonless retractable lens mechanism further allows the extension and retraction of these lenses with ease.
