The other way is to remember that Cartier Bresson never had AF even as slow as the XP1 is and still did Ok. Zone focusing is still a photographer's best friend in those conditions.

He may have used zone focusing, but he also used scale focusing, where he'd estimate the distance to the subject and set it on the lens focus ring, before raising the camera to his eye. He did take some out-of-focus pictures, which turned out to be pretty good anyway.
