Anyway this discussion is getting pretty stale. I recently got a non-CPU prime and freaking love it. Showed me that the dot focus is not any worse than my old AL-1 and I got done great shots off of that old beast. I think I'm going to just pull the af switch to manual for my af primes and forget it.

That's fine. It is fun to shoot with old manual lenses, been there done that... but decided AF is better. Anyway, if you rely on the green dot and the left/right arrows you rely on the same AF sensors the camera is using to drive the AF motors with, so in fact, you are using an auto mode.

Since I can't find anyone to switch my focus screen to a split prism, that's my only option.
