The reason you did your "way" because you want to use "phase detection" AF? Like you said, it will get the job done, but I think Live view AF is easier.

Yes, you are correct; I want to try to get phase detection AF as good as possible. But, I’m getting confused again; MFA is for phase detection tweaking, not Live view. Live view uses contrast detection off the sensor used to take the picture so will always be pretty good. Because the phase detector is a different sensor there is a chance that it will focus at a different point from the main sensor; MFA tweaks the difference.

MFA won’t have any effect on Live view focusing.

Sorry if I’ve misunderstood you.
