We have a big trip coming up in April, and I've been trying to get a feel for how to get the maximum DOF reliably with a lens that has no scale focusing, and a camera that won't display focus distance. (On the last big trip, I didn't have a tripod with me, and lost a lot of good pictures where the light was too dim for small apertures.) I've been constantly on the verge of buying a manual-focus 20mm or 21mm lens so that I could scale focus, but given my recent experience with shimming adapters and guesstimating correct focus, that seems like an unattractive option. It never occurred to me that lens adapters would make lens focusing scales inaccurate; I didn't realize it until I was way too focused (heh) on the idea of scale focusing. I even bought a couple of old accessory rangefinders, but time will tell if I actually can manage to reliably pick a distance for max DOF, find a focus point at that distance with the rangefinder, focus on that point with the G1's focus spot, and get correct focus. (That's a lot for a klutz like me to manage.) So lately I've been going around with a DOF table taped to the back of a G1 and trying to get a feel for estimating distances that will give good DOF. So far it's not going too badly, but I still wish there was a more precise but not cumbersome way to do this. I guess I'm just stuck in my old ways from when I was using an FM2 or a Fuji GW690. :-/ Anyway -- this post is more wondering out loud than a specific question, but I'd be interested to hear what other people do in similar situations.
