Re: XZ-1 and Manual Focus

I am eagerly awaiting my XZ-1 as I have taken the plunge and ordered one but as I have asked on a previous post, I was hoping that MF would tell me when I achieved infinity for shooting through glass. My sadly now dead Powershot S80 had a scale to work to and when shooting through windows, I always set MF to infinity to make sure I was focussed correctly. If the XZ-1 doesn't allow me to do this easily, I will be a bit annoyed as often, you cannot pre-focus in AF on a distant object. Anybody else got any experience of shooting through windows? Does AF focus on the glass rather than beyond?
