My last word on this one - what did people do before autofocus?

What did people do before cameras? They painted and they drew, and some fine paintings and drawings they made too. Should we go back to before there were cameras?

Photographers over the years have produced some fantastic shots without the camera doing the work for them and that's where I struggle to see the argument for one camera being better because its 0.02 of a second faster.

Photographers doing action photography today have a far higher success rate than was possible with older equipment. To not want that higher success rate is just perverse.
