Ya, I use a 7.5mm fisheye at f8, the only way I could make it out of focus is to intentionally turn the ring all the way because it can focus at like 4 inches. otherwise everything from about a foot or more is sharp
this x10. The magic lantern focus peak helps a ton. But as long as you keep it at a wide focal length and a small aperture (like f8 as people said) most of everything is oging to be in focus. But for tripod shots or ones with longer lenses/larger apertures the focus peaking (I think thats the name, it puts different colored lines over the parts that are in focus, maybe its just focus assist or something) is awesome. Much easier than having to zoom in 5 or 10x every time.
Definetly not as easy as the old days with a video camera that had auto focus. Just concentrate and don't forget to monitor exposure and focus if you are shooting an SLR and doing follow cams especially. As soon as you start spacing out and not concentrating shots will get fucked.
