I've done a lot of night work with my 5R mostly with the SEL16F28. It isn't all that bad. You can't really trust the hard infinity stop on an MF lens anyway.

The trick is to let the camera go to sleep, don't switch it off. It keeps focus that way.

But with a MF lens you can always mark the position of infinity focus if it's incorrect
