I challenge anyone to shoot manual focus instead of auto focus and get the same number great shots while shooting a lacrosse game. Manual and super fast auto focusing lenses both have their place. The manual focus ring on the 80-200 afs lens is almost useless. It's not like an old school manual lens. You have to make very small adjustments to nail focus. Impossible with fast moving subjects. I agree that a simpler design is usually better though. Less likely for mechanical failure.
