Sorry to rain on your parade, but I have just tried exactly that and no luck, it's already focused, i.e. it's still pre-focusing.

Maybe someone else should try it.  I cycled to different distances -- down the hall, objects on a shelf, back to another room, etc.  Nearly every time I put my eye to it, it was not focused correctly and "bobbled" a bit to get back in focus.

Why would it focus if it has no view turned on?  It makes sense to me.  I'll need to try it again with a noisier lens; the PZ is too quiet.  Then again, all of them focus quietly.  Oh well.
