Re: Jupiter-8

You focus these the same way you would focus any manual focus lens.

Turn on Focus Peeking and Focus Magnification in the menu.

Look through the viewfinder and turn the lens focus ring until the focus peeking color is concentrated in the area you want to be your subject.

Trigger focus magnification. Fine tune your focusing with the lens focus ring until the image in the viewfinder (or on the LED screen) is the sharpest you can get it.

Take the picture.

With practice this process goes much more quickly than it sounds. If you are like me and rely solely on Focus Magnification you can even skip the Focus Peeking step.
