That sounds handy thanks I'll give it a go - I actually do something similar when shooting for lightning photography - I use AF on a distant light or area of contrast at night and then switch it to MF to keep that focus (which is usually just infinity that I want in that case). I do that each time after zooming (usually 24-120mm lens) so its not hunting when trying to capture a bolt of lightning

That sounds like a great idea. I'll have to try that as well. Thanks.
