How would a camera be useable with it off?  As soon as I reframe the scene, everything would be blurry.  Then I'd half-press, then I'd see things in detail?  Bleah!  That just sounds annoying.  I'd be half-pressing all the time, even with a DSLR.

Wow, how lazy photographers have become, how did we survive with manual focus lenses?:)

Anyways, to the OP, the best workaround is to either use manual focus or turn off the camera till you plan to shoot, and turn it on as you bring it up to your eye, if you always do the same thing it will become 2nd nature and you will just do it without thinking about it.

The only real solution will have to come from Sony, contact them and explain the issues with per focus and birding, and the requirement for menus toggle for this "feature".
