Re: Focus pulling Em5 ii

Can't speak for the EM-5 ii specifically but I found using the rear touchscreen and touch to focus was a nice option on the E-PL5. It refocuses quite smoothly.
Obviously you need something at the new focus point if you want to focus/defocus at the end of a shot you'll need to use the focus ring on the lens.
If you want to be very specific about distance to subject you need someone else's advice
