Lock SAF+MF
 
Why does my camera refuse to stay in this mode? Keeps reverting to SAF every time I switch it back on! By the time I've switched manual focus back on what I'm trying to shoot is long gone!

My E620 stays firmly in SAF+MF even if I turn it off. I am using Aperture Priority only. Are you using Auto or Program maybe??

Same with my E-30 which I normally use on SAF+MF or MF.

E30 also stays at whatever it was at when last used when I switch on it is still at last setting.

Yes This is auto mode, it's fine in A mode, but I don't want to use A mode or I'd have to be poressing a lot more buttns before taking the shot.

Oh well, looks like I'll just have to have the camera on permanently!

Auto means auto for every thing. You gave up your rights to the camera for control. :)

Even what I want to photograph it seems! :p

Seems in P mode it will lock in SAF+MF, so I'm happy enough now. I can still focus faster with a legacy lens, but I don't have any wide enough for this cause!
