Re: focusing to infinity

depending on what lens you have some actually have a readout at the top that will say if its focusing to infinity or not. But another method is focus on something and see which way its focusing, then just manually move the focus ring all the way over and thats usually infinity.

Thanks, but the D40X does not have live view and what if there are no lights to focus on? Locking what down with a rubberband, one would have to be pretty darn talented to put a rubberband around a lens and not have it move...yes?
