the argument on AF "not fast enough for action" always amuses me. In the 70s and before it was all MF .....

But haven't you noticed how images seem to be actually getting better now as a result of those improvements in AF?

Here's an example of a photo I saw in The Guardian a few weeks ago:

From 'The Guardian' newspaper

Of course that photo could have been taken using MF, and maybe even using 35mm film, but modern tech certainly increases the possibility of getting such spectacular captures

yes, you are right. Although I find MF with the Leica M9 extremely quick once you are used to it, and also more accurate (no AF system can let you differentiate between, in an instant, whether to focus on the eyeball or the eyelid).

just being fuddy duddy

I think the top cameras today are better then most photographers, so always become amused when people nit pick/complain about the most small things IMHO
