Custom Function 19 on the EOS 3 for EF300/400/500/600 LIS Lenses: The ultra telephoto L-series EF lenses, launched in early July 1999, have a new function called "AF Stop" withfour "AF Stop" buttons on the lens. The EOS 3 can use these new AF Stop buttons for other functions by setting CF19 (custom function). CF19 is, however, not established when the camera is shipped from the factory, so the setting must be done at service facilities.
