Are you referring to the daughter of Christ, the cauldron of Celtic mythology that brought dead warriors back to life so they could continue fighting, or the cup Monty Python was seeking?

One thing about staying with one mode is that you get used to it and can operate the adjustments by muscle memory. I rarely use anything but M because I rarely need to shoot quickly. When I do use an auto mode, I have to think about it if I need to change EC.

For someone who primarily uses an auto mode, using M could be a pain because they would have to think about it.

I guess if you shoot enough in both modes you would get used to both, but that would take a lot of shooting.
