Point your cam to a cloud in the sky or some faraway object. Press the shutter button halfway. It should lock on to infinity. Then switch to manual to lock the focus so that when you point it elsewhere, it won't AF.

i'm using a canon, but i believe nikon should have similar things:
try using dedicate button to autofocus instead of halfpress the shutter.
it takes some getting used to but once you get used to, you need not bother about setting the lens on manual focus.
just press the dedicate button to focus and the shutter to shoot.

Ermm... what if it is too dark to attain a focus lock? Or if there is a 10-stop ND filter infront of the lens?

Turn your focus ring clockwise one full round, then turn back a little bit.
hmmm... i guess you have to make sure you turn it back enough (at least take a test shot and check the focus). however, once you're within the hyperfocal range for that aperture setting it should be okay.

sorry, so far, my lens all got FTM :D so can manual focus when in AF mode. if no FTM, still need to set to manual focus.

So in the end you need to use MF also... Isn't it the same? I rather switch to MF, when I know I will be shooting MF the entire morning.
