Is it easy to use a manual focus telephoto lens?
7 months ago

Hi,

Wondering if it is relatively easy to use a manual focus telephoto lens around the 400mm mark to take photos are still subjects.

I don't need it for any bif but fast enough to take a photo of a bird in a tree or a deer in the distance.

I am wondering if I should wait for the super telephoto that's suppose to come out around 2015.

The 55-200 is a great lens but the reach is no long enough.

I would be using the xt1 with a canon fd mount adapter.

Thanks!
