Sorry to rain on your parade, but I have just tried exactly that and no luck, it's already focused, i.e. it's still pre-focusing.

OK, I played with it some more, and I guess you're right -- it still pre-focuses even if the LCD isn't showing you a live view.  Even so, it's a lazy operation and probably not the largest waste of energy -- probably the LCD is.  I'd say turn the LCD off and just use the EVF, but when I have the camera dangling around my neck, the eye-sensor thinks I'm looking into it and keeps the camera turned on and using the EVF!  Ugh.  Not sure of an easy way around that.  That weird way the Nex-5 dangled lens-down actually would be better in this case.  Oh well.
