Where would you go to read up on such a thing? I too ran into the same problem, and have also owned and/or used rangefinder cameras before that don't have this issue.

It is odd and counter-intuitive that a camera of this caliber and price has such a weird focus system.

You must turn on the auxiliary focus box...with that option turned on you always see the extreme focusing point (infinity-minimum distance) and you always see where the camera is focusing.

A manual focus rangefinder doesn't have the issue (of course!) because YOU decide what to focus on. But without a rangefinderit would be impossible to focus at mid to close range without knowing the parallax error: I think Fuji's systemis quite smart actually.
