These shots were focused @ infinity just using focus confirmation. I look forward to getting out and using this lens with a tripod and live view.
At this distance and with a WA lens you can also use live-view handheld, because moving the camera back and forth 5-10cm won't change anything (at very close distance this is more difficult): You compose your photo more or less in the viewfinder, try to focus as precisely as possible with LED or by eye-sight, then press the Liveview button, pull back your head a bit in order to see the LCD, adjust the focus if necessary a bit, then close the mirror again, recheck exact framing and press the shutter. I do it with the ZF lenses on my 5dII, I have to close the aperture also, but it is possible. At medium to long distance no problem, with close distance it is more difficult because when changing from viewfinder to display it is difficult not to move the camera back and forth a few inches. At close distance it is still possible by using a support for the arm, like a tree trunk, or whatever - by holding the camera free it is difficult then...
I explain this because I am often too lazy to carry a tripod around specially in good light, but I still like to use liveview with my manual lenses in order to reduce the number of frames with misfocus.
