John, have you ever evenconsidered that its just YOU that has a problem manual focussing? You know, we did it for years and years years with no problems whatsoever. (and still do to this very day)

Dont go thinking that just because manually focussing is problematic for you, that it is for everyone. That is the height of huberous. I can teach you some tricks to learn how, send me an email... I can tech you to drive your camera without autofocus or the cameras meter.

Interested, John? Or are you a 'line up the meter blindly and press go' type of shooter?

I use my 50mm f/1.8D on my D40 & D5000 all the time... And they don't have focussing motors. Why would someone not be able to use it on a D5200 or D3200?

Wait, there isn't a reason.

I think AF has many benefits and to pretend that the lack of focus motor is no issue isn't helpful. Yes its possible to autofocus....

Its worth playing with the cameras. In the end I got a lightly used D90 mainly for the view finder. The Af points are easier to see, it has grid lines which I find useful for getting the camera level. The viewfinder is alot bigger and brighter
