Thanks for the replies -

I might look at a different lens then - an AI as you suggested or maybe the 1.4.

Keep in mind, y'all, I'm talking about the 1.8 "D" and not the "G" which I know has a lame manual focus ring.

So the 1.4 has a better manual focus? It looks a LOT like the 1.8.

To answer the question "why" - it's for video - AND for the past 2 years I've been using a man focus 50 for stills and I love it.
