    Yeah; there is no standard...except: On whatever camera, just move the thingy around until the pic is sharp where you want it to be sharp!

    I actually agree with you. The Rollei SLRs are correct (Clockwise to infinity). But now that that is settled, what about aperture rings...


    Oh yea, here is another backwards one: Shen Hao 8x10 camera. Screwing in the focus knob counterclockwise goes to infinity. This messes me up all the time.

    The top group is for people who focus using their right hand. The bottom group is for people who use their left.

    DUH!!!!!!

    Real photographers don't need to focus anyway.

    BetterSense,

    You have reopened a wound I have not ached from for about 20 years.

    I used to be able to operate my Pentax ES-II one-handed because I knew the focus direction.

    When I modernized, I went with OM at my best friend's recommendation.

    The pain of re-learning how to focus was as persistent as the pain I felt re-learning to type on a Qwerty keyboard after having learned on a Linotype.

    Contax IIa counter-clockwise to infinity (lens), clockwise to infinity (knurled wheel).

    Get auto-focus and not twist anything.
