    Hello,
    I want to use the high ISO features of the Canon EOS RP to shoot pictures lighted with only one candle.
    But with low light, autofocus fails. Lets go to manual focus.
    EOS RP user manual page 214 says "Set the lens’s focus mode switch to <MF>."
    But there is no such a switch on this lens.
    The Canon RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM user manual says page 7 :
    "To use only manual focusing (MF), set the camera's focus mode to MF".
    ????
    Does anybody have an idea how to make manual focus in this case ?
    Thank you.
    Garddiner

    You can remove focus confirmation before taking an image through custom functions, some cameras this is "No Lens" option for shutter operation. You can manually focus the lens at any time while it is set to focus.

    There is a menu entry to set the Camera in Manual Focus mode.
    Just, the user manual is not good.
    Thank you very much, your answer and the link help a lot.
