Re: LBA FA50mm ; why manual focus ???

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

I will most definetely shoot some pics with the lens soon and post another set.

I like the lens a lot since I love the M 50mm f1.4 I own and this is practically the same lens but with auto focus, etc.. So I naturally love this one too. Its the M in modern form in a plastic body and the focusing is still nice and smooth - but not nearly as smooth and it doesnt have that heavy feel of the focusing action of the M of course.

I used manual focus because I had to - It doesnt focus on what I want it to focus on with AF and I used manual exposure testing the exposure with the green button in M mode because I encountered this problem when I was using the M 50mm too so I wanted to see if it was a lens problem (aperture blades old, misadligned, etc.) or if it was a camera problem as can be seen - its a camera problem since the camera acts the same exact way with both lenses in this mode. This issue is not as important but the AF issue is as negates one of the main reasons I had the LBA and bought the FA50 as I have to manually focus now - the only advantage it gives me over the M this way is auto exposure and TTL flash ability.
