LBA FA50mm ; why manual focus ???

OK first of all some good news ( you can skip this first paragraph
if youre only interested in the issues)

I got my FA50 f/1.4 - oh what a sweet lens. Very sharp, awesome
bokeh but not distinguishable from my M50mm f1.4 for IQ - at least
indoors anyways - I am yet to take it out durikng the day as it
just arrived today. I didnt buy it for IQ improvements anyways - I
got it for the convenience of being able to shoot in Av, TAv mode,
etc.. for the convenience of auto focus and the sound of the auto
focus with this lens is so much cooler than with the kit lens - it
sound more contained (a more reassuring higher quality sound if
that even makes sense and it has fast AF - I like it) and lastly I
got it for the convenience of being able to use P-TTL flash. The M
is a very nice lens and the FA is just as good (but not better IMO)
but also convenient of course since its modern!

We look forward to see some of your LBA pict. Apparently you like the lens a lot.
It is really fast in focusing. Why did you use manual? Very unusual indeed
