    This lens is INCREDIBLE for IR photography too!

    Instead of painting on the lens, better try this one:

    1. Go to “Setup menu” and choose “dust off ref photo”.
    2. Screen tells you to take a photo of a bright object and says “Focus will
    be set to infinity”.
    3. Here comes the tricky part. Now press the shutter halfway down.
    4. Switch the lens to manual mode
    5. Tadaa!..you’ve got automatically infinite focus!
