Big Iron - Easy focus shift

If you need to shift focus from a near to a far object, there is a very easy way to do it.

First focus the lens on the far target. Then unlatch the macro ring on the lens and bring the near subject into focus.

To shift focus, just turn the macro ring back to the locked position.
