    focus lock beep

    Hi all,
    Anyone has experience in not getting the focus lock BEEP on D700? I had turn on the BEEP, but when I lock the focus (pressed half way on the shutter release), there is no beep at all. Wondering if it is a defect or this feature is removed from D700.
    I missed the beep while I was on D70s.

    You haven't accidentally switched to continuous focus? it won't beep on that setting.
    Cheers, Lani.

    Hi Lani,
    Yes, I did set to S at the C-S-M knob next to the lens mount on the left/front.
    The beep can be heard when I set the sound to L or H at CUSTOM MENU SETTING - DISPLAY - BEEP to H, L, or OFF.
    But still, focus lock at S, no beep...

    anything I missed?

    thanks!

    That one took me a while to figure out a couple of years back too hmw.

    As Lani said, it won't beep in continuous focus and the other setting that disables it is have focus set to release instead of focus. Custom setting menu A2 --- AF-S priority selection.
