Take the famous Saigon Execution photo. AF did not exist then and in that instant got that shot like many other famous or infamous shots.

SO, sure, MF had to do the job and most new photographers especially those of the digital age are at a disadvantage IMO by making a mirrorless camera their first camera. It should be a DSLR even with one lens just to learn and if you can shoot a DSLR well enough you can use any camera the same way and get excellent results.

Its not the camera it is all technique. One should also understand how to light and meter said light it can help a lot.
