I am not sure what makes "critical focus" in your book. I settle for the level of focus I get from my AF lenses. MF lenses would mean a lot of my photos wouldn't have been taken.

There are times especially with Macro lenses that AF just isn't going to give the correct point of focus, or is too slow; sometimes you need a higher level of control.

Especially in situations where the viewer decides what will need to be in focus, like abstracts:

AF isn't always the best solution, sometimes manual is the best way.
