I'm been shooting since 2003 with a DSLR and recently with an XE1. I don't use manual focus, ever. Well, maybe a couple time in really low light when I can't get focus. Everyone here seems obsessed over manual focusing. I feel like I'm a fairly competent photographer, but I wonder what am I missing. Sincere question here, I feel like maybe need to learn some more in this area.

The number of times my X-Pro1 and 35/1.4 won't acquire focus, or mis-focus, is more than I would like. That is the only reason I'm eager to get decent manual focus performance on the X-mount.

Cheers!
