Re: Fuji focus distance fault
I'm curious - apart from zone focusing using aperture/DoF - why do you need to actually know the distance?

I (note: I'm not the OP) use it sometimes when using the OVF and I'm not entirely sure whether the camera's focus is on the subject or somewhere on the background (...). It can be rather helpful then?

Funnily enough, just this weekend I noticed too that the scale seems to be off sometimes. It indicated that the focus was on "1 Meter" when the Subject was rather 0.5 Meters away.
