    a quite specific question about autofocus, more exactly the depth
    information (SubjectDistance tag in the EXIF info - for Canon Cameras).

    Which are the cameras with the highest number of focus points possible?
    Is there any camera where the SubjectDistance information for a
    specific focus point can be read out via a PC connection without making
    an exposure, just in the phasis where focus measurements are made by
    lightly pressing the shutter release knob.

    I would like to use the camera to roughly approximate / sample the
    depth information of the visible field through the viewfinder.

    I would appreciate any thoughts / ideas about this.
