    Default Do I turn it off?

    Hi, I was wondering if I have to turn off the camera everytime I change lenses?

    Thanks

    Default Yes...

    It's only so that when you turn it back on the "Super Sonic" anti-dust feature gets rid of any dust particles that got in...

    It should be in your manual...

    Not turning it off while changing lenses that communicate with the body can cause the camera to lock up. Personal experience and have heard others say it too.

    It could also cause lens malfunctions.

    agree, turn it off,, have had mine lock up and forced to power off and on to clear out whatever was hung,, after doing it a few times with power on I found the lens I placed on would have no auto focus,,????

    first time I thought the camera fizzed out on me,, turned it off and placed the lens back on that I knew was working and all was fine,, finally figured it out that the times the camer (auto focus) hung was when I did not power it down,,
