    My old Olympus D550 has a button you can push to lock it on infinity focus. My G12 does the same if you manual focus on infinity and store it in a preset.

    I'm looking for something more modern that can do the same thing . . . MUST have a viewfinder.

    Cheers, Jock

    The only camera that I know of that can do this is the Olympus EM1.2. It has the "preMF" mode, where you can set the camera to a specific focus distance, then when you activate PreMF focusing mode, it goes to that distance, locks and that is it. I believe that it's main goal was to satisfy those looking for a way to jump directly into a hyperfocal distance. It should however satisfy what you are looking for.
