    As the moment to leave approaches, I am checking that I learned what I am sure will need.

    I am going to take some wideangle, available darkness shoots inside dimly lit churches, where the wide end of the trusty 14-42 will be of help alongside longer exposures.

    But we all know that this lens struggles in focusing in low light, so I'm looking for help on this issue.

    I tried manual focusing by the ring for a while, and would like to know if there are easy ways to reset focus to infinity and to shortest distance - can't find them in the manual.

    Hope somone already had this issue and found a working solution?
    My plan B are the 16/1.4 and 25/1.4 C-mount lenses, but those are only sharp in the center and vignetting is an issue, and pre-travel funds will cover only the VF-2 (if I find it).
