    Potential Hyperfocal Workaround for EP1

    Ideally, a future firmware update will give us a manual focus scale display. In the meantime, the following might work.

    Let's say one is working with the following,
    - the 17mm pancake lens
    - f/8
    - external optical viewfinder
    - wants to focus at 10ft

    Here is how the camera can be setup,
    - AEL/AFL button set to S-AF (no MF)
    - Lens reset to Off
    - Use AEL/AFL button to focus on something 10ft away
    - Turn off LCD

    This way, the camera should be very quick for "street shooting".

    Have you found a better way? If so, please share. Manual lens is, of course, another option.

    So will this disconnect AF? Otherwise on release the
    camera will hunt.....
    I will try it later with the zoomie @ 28mm and the
    Voigtlander finder.....

    With AF assigned to AEL/AFL, it appears to me that shutter lag is minimal. In other words, when the shutter button is fully pressed, the camera does not try to AF again.

    I'm doing the opposite. I have lens reset on so I know at startup I have infinity focus. Still there needs to be a better way for both Pen and G1
