I am assuming Zone Focusing is in the instruction manual? I haven't got there yet, and i still haven't bought my nikon to X adapter.

Can't wait to get that going. In April i am going to two weddings

I doubt it's in the manual but it's not difficult at all to get decent at. It does take practice but any of the AF issues with these mirrorless cameras simply melts away. BTW, I mentioned the 28mm focal length at is much easier to do with wider lenses.

Here is a good article on zone focusing to give you an idea of what's involved:  http://digital-photography-school.com/ultimate-guide-to-zone-focusing-for-candid-street-photography

BTW, I picked up the Fotodiox Pro adapter (no aperture ring) and it works very well for not much $ plus nicely built

Have fun at the weddings.
