I have ordered a P3, and want to use it mostly for still photography. While the camera is obviously capable of taking some really stunning photos, it's going to take some getting used to a camera with a fixed focal length, fixed focus distance, and a fixed aperture. The fixed (wide open) aperture and focus at infinity will mean some loss of sharpness at close quarters. I know this is not exactly how most people want to use the P3, but it would be nice to be able to take close-in photos when needed. My question is this. An f2.8 20 mm focal length (35 mm format equivalent) lens focused at infinity will have a near depth of field distance of around 24 feet - i.e. subjects this close will still be sharp. The same lens with a focus point at 24 feet, will have a depth of field that extends from around 13 feet to infinity. My reading of the P3 specs is that the former is true - the focus point is actually infinity. Would it not make more sense to set it at 24 feet (the 'hyperfocal' distance)? Or do I have it wrong - the lens is designed to focus on the hyperfocal point, thus providing the maximum depth of field that includes infinity? Has anyone run tests to determine how close a subject can be to the camera, and still be in sharp focus?
