Macro focus

I'm having trouble getting Macro Focus turned on. It is currently grayed out and won't let me select it. Any thoughts?

Yep! I didn't realize it had to be in autofocus to work.

macro can work in manual focus

lets call the focus ring position A & B. setting A is manual focus only, B is manual / autofocus. for macro to work you have to be in B for macro to work.

obviously macro has to be turned on, but it will work in auto or manual focus mode as long at the focus ring is set to B
