OMD E-M5/GX1 - Zone/Pre-Focusing, Lens Reset
Been thinking about getting either an E-M5 or GX1 and the Panasonic 14/20 combo.
I shoot street, and typically do a lot of zone focusing, and while the Oly 12/17 may be a better combo due to the DOF scales on the barrel, the 14/20 combo is simply cheaper where I am, and is easier to find used copies of.
I've been thinking of setting the body to MF only, and pre-focusing to say 4ft or 5ft with the 14mm - and my question is, if the body goes to sleep, does the lens 'lose' the pre-focused distance?
i.e. if I wake the camera, will the lens still be prefocused to wherever I had it last focused?
Also, I believe the LX7 has on-screen DOF scales similar to the Fuji X-series, but I don't seem to see any reference to this appearing on the GX1 as well, can anyone confirm?
