Auto-focus with the remote control

This is not a question, but something I found out the other night that others may find useful.

If you choose "Release priority" as the "AF.S Setting" option in your camera custom menu and "Autofocus When Using Remote Control" as the "AF with Remote Control" option, then the camera doesn't autofocus when using the remote. You need to set "Focus priority" for the first option. I may be stupid, but that really wasn't obvious.

Thanks for the tip. It is very useful when I first got the remote and couldn't figure out why the camera doesn't auto-focus before every shot.
