Re: Mine's really simple...

I most often use auto focus (for general photography my camera is accurate and much faster than I am).

I usually manual focus for macro photography and some times on a static or landscape subject where I can take the time.

I have had situations where I couldn't get a good focus lock on the subject with manual focus and I switched to auto focus and got a pretty darn good image (yeah, these cameras are amazing).

I usually (95% of the time) use manual focus when doing video.

I always use focus peaking when using manual focus.
