Agree but there is another catch

The focus by wire sometime does not know where it is, and the camera default itself to infinitive instead of staying at the same location it was set. I guess the camera uses a stepper motor, so each time it is turned on, the motor needs to reset to the zero position (like a digital printer)

If I do MF, I rather use a old legacy lens that has manual focus ring like this one.

Nikkor 35mm/F2  - Tricky to get the dog eye in focus - I used Canon Magic Lantern.
