I am in Chicago about once per month to pick up photo and art supplies, as well as shoot . I typically shoot architectural subjects there with medium format equipment, but after acquiring the Olympus RC, would be interested in some candid street shooting. I would be interested in knowing if any members have used their RC's for street work, and in particular, if there is any technique or technical "tricks of the trade" that you employ in situations which require fast focus. Thanks for your input.

Best thing I could suggest is 400ASA film, pick which ever shutter-speed gives you upwards of F/16 (probably 125th/250th on a bright day), put the focussing-ring at about 5m and then more or less everything from 3m to infinity will be within the 'zone of acceptible focus'.
