The camera does have the ability to indicate when focus is achieved over a certain point during manual focus, but only if all of the correct settings that affect the display are selected. One technique to achieve more accurate manual focus is by using Live View on the rear LED screen rather than by focusing through the optical viewfinder. Live View gives you a realtime view of what the cameras imaging sensor is seeing, and its possible to zoom Once you take advantage of zone focus and hyperfocal distance you can easily draw the viewfinder to your eye, compose, and release the shutter, without taking any time to focus.
