I am using a zoom lens. The focal length is adjusted to 70 mm with manual focus.

I then switch off the camera. Will the focus change after i re-turn on the camera?

Noted that focal length and zoom ring remains unchanged from the beginning.

    If you are already using it, why don't you just try and find it out? – Zenit Apr 15 '16 at 11:51

Will the focus change after i re-turn on the camera?

Of the DSLRs that I can think of, none changes the focus setting when you turn the camera off or on. However, if you have the camera configured to focus with a half-press of the shutter release, the focus may change if you try to take a picture.

If you have the camera in your possession, it's easy enough to test: just keep an eye on the focus distance indicator on the lens as you turn the camera off and on again.

Yes, but only if you are using a Canon STM lens. STM lenses will rack the focus in, and then out, when you turn the camera on, but it should return to the original focus distance.

Non-STM lenses will not change focus.
