If you set the lens for hyperfocal like BosseBe writes and turn on focus peaking, you'll have a reality check that I find helpful/comforting.Got a quick question on this lens ... I know this lens is MF only, but for street photography can I just set the focal length to say 2m and leave it at that? Or do I need to manually focus the lens all the times?
Exactly this.If you set the aperture to 5.6 and align the " ¬8 " (infinity) mark on the focus ring to match the " ¬3.5 " mark on the aperture ring, it should be what is called hyperfocal, having everything from maybe 0.25m to infinity in focus.
If I'm wrong, I'm sure someone will correct me!
