I've read a lot of fellows on here bragging about how good the AF is on the D6x0s and the Df. But in reality it's a second tier AF. It has to show up somewhere coming up short compared to D4s, D800s, D700s.

Photography - It's a passion No other reason required.

And yet, knowing how to properly manual focus wins 100% of the time!

Ever been at a Relay for Life? Manual focus not going to help you shooting people moving on a track wat walking speeds.

Your best method for that is called the zone focus method.

1. You need to close down the aperture to increase the DOF

2. Set the lens focus to either a distance on the lens that you want to capture or focus on a stationary point at that distance.

3. Wait until the subject enters the "zone" and snap the shot.

It takes practice to do this, but you will get better at it and it is also a good technique for getting candid street shots.

Unfortunately, the Dƒ has nothing to offer for manual focus aids except the green dot, which is okay as along as the aperture is not wide open with a narrow depth of field.
