"Pointless" for Joms, perhaps. But not for a lot of users. We need to try to look at things beyond our own narrow perspective. Professional movie reviewers tend to do the same thing. The audiences often enjoy movies the professional viewers pan, perhaps because jaded reviewers are easily bored or expect too much. The highly practiced photographer often pan camera features that are enjoyed by those less practiced than they.  I'm not surprised if auto focus is panned by some purists as a pointless feature that detracts from creativity.
