A7: Manual focusing and focus peaking
1 month ago

I finally went out with my Canon FD 135mm 2.5 and FE 55 this week and decided to set B&W in camera with focus peaking and I swear I may actually prefer MF over AF now. Granted I still need to practice using MF more but the focus peaking is such a joy to use.

A few shots I took today except the FE 55 one. Some don't have spot on focus as I'll need to practice a little more but I find MF really fun to use. Anyone else prefer MF over AF? Any tips too?
