I know manual is important for areas where autofocus can't hold up, tricky situations.

But in the world's easiest "lab conditions" like... I dunno... a printed page on a wall, with a rock steady tripod... will autofocus always be more perfectly sharp than manual? I know some lenses/cameras are better at it than others, but generally speaking.

I have a rebel T5 for the record. My lens for "I want the sharpest shot possible" right now is a Canon f2.8 60mm macro.
