Re: Honestly, do you like autofocus?

Everyone is talking about autofocus as if it’s something new in the digital age. I first encountered it when I moved from the Canon FD lens system with an AV-1 to the EF system and an EOS-5. Those early EF lenses still work on today’s EF mount Canon cameras. As others have said, it’s there if you want to use it, if not switch to MF and give it a go, you might struggle without any inbuilt focusing aids though but even so you’ll probably get a decent hit rate. People managed since long before AF appeared.
