Re: No Manual Focus Assist with the 17mm 1.8???

I wasn't aware of the rectangle thing, thanks for the info.

Personally I find AF to be something akin to a focus lottery and I avoid it if I can. However, I think manufacturers have hit a gold mine here; it's so much easier to make a servo assisted focusing system without distance and DoF scales, plus the gubbins to make it work reliably.

Who in God's name thought AF was a good idea? Good for the lazy photographer, maybe.
