Yes, Bill, I have looked at the specs. However, I have seen things on other cameras that were possible that were not covered in the specs. I would hope that somewhere along the line in publishing a book an error such as this would be caught. Just to cover all bases I'm throwing the question out to a realm of experts on UHH, has anybody been able to duplicate the seemingly impossible?

On this focus issue it's just a flat statement it can be done with no elaboration.
