Quickest way to focus at infinity (or at set specific distance) on a Q7?

Hi all,

Quick question for people more familiar with the Q7 than I:  what is the quickest way to manually set the focus to infinity (or any other distance)?  On my X-E1 there is a focus scale that comes up in the LCD in manual focus mode, where I can just turn the focus ring until it hits the end (or wherever I wish to focus).

I can't seem to find anything equivalent on the Q7; that is, I can't find any way to know at what distance the lens is currently focussed at when using manual focus...  this would also be useful, for example, when doing zone focussing.  I know there's the focus peaking I could use, but perhaps there's something I haven't found yet that might help?

Any ideas, anyone?

Cheers,

-Steve
