It does well.  I don't manual focus a lot but I do have some Ai lenses and they work with the green dot in the view finder very well.  I also have tried to use the live view feature and set a button to maximum magnification so I can use this as a focusing aid.  This method is what I use with macro photography and it works well for me.  Now that I have a stack shot, all I need to do is to get a beginning focus and end focus.  The stack shot does the rest.  I also have some Pre-Ai lenses that I have not tried yet.  Since I use AF-S lenses in my daily shooting, I haven't thought much about manual focusing yet.
