In case of using it without af you would simply use the live view function, I am taking for granted that you are using a tripod then the focusing is a s easy as pie using the live view since it has a 20 max magnification.

Thanks for reply. Live View works quite well in well lit areas, but sometimes when it is poorly lighted such as using the Tungsten rendering lights on the Strobes, Live View could have problem detecting the scene.

Using manual focusing lenses is at first a bit iffy but its something you get very easily used to. The TS 90 is also a really nice lens as previously recommended and will give you a great flexibility particularly when you can not get a straight angle to the painting. B.t.w all the TS or PC lenses are manual focus.

What is PC lens?

I am thinking about ordering Display calibration tool and the Macro lens from the US, but since I am half way across the globe, shipping is a problem.
