I didn't find that to be the case at first. When I turn off my NEX 5T and turn it back on, it remembers where I focused to. But if I turn it off, remove the lens, re-attach the lens, and then turn it back on, it doesn't remember my focus. It's dark out, so I can't test what it defaults to. Has anyone confirmed that it defaults to infinity?

Another way to trick the lens into defaulting to infinity seems to be to take the battery out before switching it back on (with focus in manual of course).

Haven't tested it with stars yet but it does seems to work consistently with distant features (such as mountains on the horizon).
