There's no "focus lock" mechanism on this thing and you have to keep switching either from the body or lens to get it to stop focusing on shutter.

Yes there is.  As with most cameras, autofocus occurs on half-pressing the shutter button.  Once you hear the focus confirm beep and/or see the focus confirmation indicator, the focus is locked while the shutter button is held in the half-pressed position.  If you wish, you can recompose and then press the shutter button the rest of the way down to take the shot.  (Page 63 of the English language manual).

If you find that too difficult, you can customise the buttons.  (see Page 167 of the English language manual)   The second setting "Enable AF2" may suit you.
