Am I nuts, manual focusing is FUN???
Jan 18, 2014

I was reading some complaints about focus not locking in low light or sometimes when you don't have a contrasty area to focus on and decided to give manual focus a try with focus peeking and the zoom feature on the control wheel, and I'll tell ya, it was actually enjoyable.  I had no trouble seeing the peeking lines, zoom was great, picswere sharp in low light.

So, how many others here actually enjoy and prefer to shoot manual focus with the x trans cams?  Does it get you past the misery of low light focus locking?  It almost felt like I was cheating and the X-E1 helped me cheat with the peeking and zoom control.
