I have some non-AF-S lenses that I will want to use on my V1 (I have not yet received my V1 but I am so anxious to get it that I am researching in advance), most importantly my AF Nikkor 85mm f/1.4D. Obviously I will have to manually focus these lenses and am curious about the best way to do so. On my D700, when using MF lenses, I use live view and magnify the view to see the fine detail and manually focus that way. But the V1 isn't able to do that is it? And if not, how do I ensure that the manual focus is precise?
