My comment has not posted, so I'll send it again:

Leica users set the lens at its hyperfocal distance for quick focussing.

As a child, starting at about ages 4-5, my sister and I would daily climb onto a chair and take down the huge volume "The Decisive Moment" (With the Matisse cover)and look at every picture. It was our favorite book, endlessly fascinating and amusing.
I give thanks!
