Hi all! I recently got the RF85mm 1.2 and I'm using it on the R5 body. I thought it was defective becuase it is CONSTANTLY hunting focus even when I have not half pressed the shutter. It is a loud focusing system so it was really driving me nuts. I thought it was defective as none of my other lenses seem to do this. I did some poking around online and discovered that indeed I did have Continuous AF enabled. SO... All of my lenses must have been doing the same thing but you just don't hear it so it's imperceptible. Here is my question... it seems like a really good thing to have enabled especially when shooting people, but I would assume that even if disabled, when using any of the eye tracking modes those would sort of override the disable and enable it - for that mode. Am I correct to think this, or would enabling it with eye tracking be even better when shooting people? Sorry long winded. Any help is greatly apppreciated! Sorry for typos - typing fast.
Have you looked at the menu system to see if Continuous Autofocus is turned on. What you describe would happen if it was. Servo autofocus is what you want, not continuous...
I've noticed the same thing with both the RF 35 and RF 50. I've tried different settings and I'm struggling to get them to focus at all. I've had to switch to manual focus during a family photo shoot!
