Re: LBA FA50mm ; why manual focus ???

Im not sure what youre getting at here? The AF was very bad with the FA50mm at first so I had to focus manually to get my object in focus - then I threw the battery in the charger and with a full charge the AF was much better. What doesnt make sense?

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.)

That does not make any sense. Did you use spot focus? You are
saying you have to do manual focusing on your FA50mm 1.4. Its focus
ring is not meant to be top notch
