40D/450D "live view"focus question
Oct 15, 2008

Is there any reason I can't focus first with autofocus, then engage "live view", and hit shutter release, w/o refocusing by using the cumbersome l.v.methods?

I'm usually shooting wide angle w/small apereratures for high d.o.f. so I have a lot of leeway in my focusing. If I focus first, switching to live view w/o and shooting w/ohitting the " " button should leave my focus ok, right??? (as long as I don't move camera or subject a lot)

Tx
