If I prefer to manually focus, should I still get the FE 55?

Showing the current focus distance of the lens alongside the shutter, aperture and other settings would help in those situations where we currently have to resort to manual lenses. It should also help sales of E-mount prime lenses in preference to legacy lenses with adapters.

And is that the expected behavior of FE lenses on A7/A7r?

I gather from earlier that the RX1 can show DOF -- so it also knows distance? -- and displays all that on-screen?

Does that happen to have a particular name? I'd be interested to search for some examples of how well it works -- as that's one of the advantages of manual lenses for me.

Thanks!
