    I’m curious if you are aware of Magic Lantern (ML) having an alpha version that has the potential to automatically set MFA on Canon DSLR’s with “dot-tune”. Maybe even on DSLR’s without MFA by interacting with focus confirmation. Very, very interesting … at least to me.

    Hopefully should get a look at one before I head off to the US at the end of the month
