In addition, the lenses from our Sports line have customizable AF speed, focus limiter, OS function and full-time manual focus function. The 'Custom Mode Switch' is the device for further customization on the dedicated lenses.

In addition to AF/MF, MO (Override) is incorporated as one of the options of the focus mode switch. By setting it to the MO position, it switches to manual focus by rotating the focus ring even during continuous AF. With AF position, standard full-time manual focus is available. Using the optional SIGMA USB DOCK, it is possible to adjust the MO position’s sensitivity to switch to manual focus
