Nikon D7200 for America User Manual

Manual Focus


Manual focus is available for lenses that do not support 
autofocus (non-AF NIKKOR lenses) or when the autofocus does 
not produce the desired results (

0 96).

• AF lenses: Set the lens focus 

mode switch (if present) and 
camera focus-mode selector 
to M.

• Manual focus lenses: Focus manually.

To focus manually, adjust the lens focus 
ring until the subject is in focus. 
Photographs can be taken at any time, 
even when the image is not in focus.

AF Lenses

Do not use AF lenses with the lens focus mode switch set to M and 
the camera focus-mode selector set to AF. Failure to observe this 
precaution could damage the camera or lens. This does not apply to 
AF-S lenses, which can be used in M mode without setting the 
camera focus-mode selector to M.
