Re: Nikon Df, how easy to focus manually?

Yes I agree that most the new "g" lenses are not good for manual focusing.  The lack of smoothness in the focusing rings such as the one on the Nikon 28mm f1.8g lens is a joke really.  I got rid of the Nikon 28mm f1.8 lens because of this reason and went back to a manual focus lens with an aperture ring, in fact I now have three of these at the 20mm, 25mm and 50mm focal lengths.  Two ais Nikons and one Zeiss.  I hardly ever try manual focus using a g lens on my d4 or d7100.
