Fuji HS50 EXR Infinity Focus

One of the good points of the HS50 is the fast focussing however I have come across a particular problem whilst getting to grips with the camera that hopefully someone here may be able to help out with.

Is there a way to lock the camera at infinity focus? I have read the manual and there does not seem to be a control for it.

An example of the problem was noticed when I was trying to take a full zoom picture of a buzzard soaring fairly high against a completely blue sky. The camera just could not focus on the subject meaning that I missed the shot.

Another example would be taking sots of the Moon. Not such a big problem as the one above as it's big and doesn't move fast.

Other than that the camera is great but this has irritated me slightly.

Any tips?
