It me thinking, i wonder how accurate the scale is on the zuiko lenses?
given the scale, and normally used aperture/HFL combination's, it's more a case of how accurately can you set it on the scale than how accurate is the scale! eg you have 3mm covering the scale between 30ft and infinity - and it's a log scale as well!

they are useful for dof shooting relating to close objects but not HF work.

pre setting focus from an illuminated source at a suitable distance is the best solution.
