Any way to get a focus distance reading?
1

I am having a hard time getting an entire scene in focus using hyperfocal technique.

Is there any way I can set focus as a distance? Say I want 4 feet. I punch in 4 feet, and bam it's done. Or at least show me in the viewfinder or something so I can stop there. It is impossible with a lot of modern lenses to get the focus distance you want because it isn't on the lens.

I'm about to start taking a tape measure with me and focusing on the tip...
