1 metre for me too, but that's just for lines. For stationary fisheye shots I pre focus it in liveview with 10x magnification just to be extra accurate.

If you are using a canon t2i or something of the sort you can press the button labeled "AF selection point" here to zoom in 5 or 10x so you can see the differences in focus.
