    I've had a couple of instances recently where I wanted to take close ups through glass (eg something on the other side of a window). If I've used Macro or Super-macro, the camera seems to have been focussing on the glass (not suprisingly). But if I use manual focus, I don't seem to be able to focus nearly as close.
    Any suggestions for how to work round this?

    Try using the super macro mode and let it grab focus on the glass and then switch it to Manual Focus to fine tune. The camera should allow the range of focus whatever focus method you choose.
