Now that the Df is out, I really wonder how easy for the Df to focus manually without the focus confirmation dot?

So far I have not found any very useful information about the ability to focus. Yes some people have said it was easier, but I would like to get some thorough details about the Ovf

The questions kind of generic. Traditionally the bete noir of SLRs has been fast wide angles. Focusing may be fine for 'normal' and teles, but it's the fast wides that I want to find out about. Your old school photojournalists might wear an FTn with a 105/2.5 and a Leica M4 with a 35/2 simply because of the focusing differences.

It wasn't just because of the focusing differences.  Wide angle lenses for rangefinder cameras were usually better and lighter.
