Re: LX5 (or other small Lumix) Manual Focus Question The question is: if you set a focus point in MF mode on the LX5, does it stay that way or does it revert to auto-focus when the screen turns off. No. you flick a switch on the lens body and that's it. the camera is in full manual focus mode until you return the switch to AF or AF/Macro. The screen going off is neither here nor there.
