Which of YOUR old manual focus lenses is "WAY BETTER" than ANY autofocus lens? Which situations are you talking about?

Macro situations for one.

Which macro lens & situation?   You'd probably have to go past twice life size (i.e. a modern macro on an extension tube) but then again, have you tested any modern lenses reversed?  Auto-focus itself becomes much less useful, but the lens optics do not depend on AF.
