Fukui-san today wrote a post today that gives a super-easy way to set the DP Merrill cameras to infinity focus. The original article is here:

The procedure is:

  1. Set the camera to Auto Focus.
  2. Turn off the camera.
  3. Turn the camera back on. When the camera restarts, focus will be set to infinity.
  4. Turn the camera to Manual Focus to ensure the shutter won't auto focus.

Yeah.. infinity or beyond?  If you're willing to do all as described, why not put the camera in MF and just spin the lens focusing ring all the way til focus is at the end?
