Re: What is wrong with manual focus?

Speaking for myself, I'm 65 and wear glasses with graduated bifocal lenses , and particularly with telephoto lenses my eyes never do as good a job as the camera's autofocus in terms of getting the focus tack sharp just where I want it. I occasionally use manual focus to get the subject approximately right, then fine tune with the camera's auto-focus.
