Forced to Use Manual Focus

My X-E2 stopped auto focusing a couple of months back forcing me to use manual focusing exclusively. At first I tried focus peaking, but found I couldn't get the peaking to peak the right areas. I settled on traditional manual focus with aperture priority and auto iso. With minimal practice I find that I'm getting more in focus images than when I used AFS. Another benefit is that battery life has gone up perceptibly. Since the time I bought this camera I knew that taking pictures of erratically moving subjects would be beyond its and my ability, for stills though this camera using this method works really well.
