Re: Pentax Q dial suggestion to Pentax: Implement Zone Focusing

Hi Zvonimir,

Not really what you want, but are you aware that with the AF Q system lenses, you can set the Q up to remember the last focus setting when the camera is turned off and then on again?

This allows you to set up the 01 prime with a set focusing distance by focusing to the distance, then switching to MF on the body. when turned on, the lens is prefocused to the last distance used. You do have to make sure that you don't touch the focus ring once the camera is turned on again. . .

I do like your idea about being able to program the front dial to preset focusing distances though. . .
