Re: Are there any serious users of MF lenses on this forum?

I regularly used manual focus lenses on my Pentax cameras, and focus peaking was an added perk, but I didn't keep any of them. The m4/3 and 4/3 lenses are so nice, I just don't see any reason to use old lenses any more. I had a Vivitar Series One zoom that was wonderfully sharp and produced beautiful images but, let's face it, it was like carrying around a lump of lead. I just couldn't see what I would gain from lugging it around any more. Probably if I had some wildly expensive legacy glass, I would feel differently, but for just run-of-the-mill old glass, I don't see it.
