i like that method as well, it acurate, easy and you dont have to take the camera outside to find distant objects ect..and for coupled rangefinder not much else is needed..but for scale focus i find its easy , after colimating the way mentioned, to then check the short distances with GG measured excatly and if need be alter the scale a few mm to be exact--it doesnt matter if the infinity scale is out a few mm and usualy there isnt any exact mark for it anyway
