What brand of lenses do you own? The reason I ask is that there are some lenses that won't focus to infinity on certain bodies without an expensive adapter.

And how is your eyesight? Have you tried focusing a manual lens in dimmer light lately?

Some digital cameras are better for manual focusing than others—you might look for a camera that offers what is called "focus peaking" on the LCD screens—focus peaking is it is a feature that puts a colored outline around whatever is in focus.

And go ask over at the Adapted Lens forum. They might be able to steer you to a camera that has been successful for people like you.

I own mostly M42s, couple of Pentax Ks and a bunch of FSU M39s
I'm wearing glasses by the way. Focusing in deem light isn't that hard for me.

Peaking makes it easy.

The few Super Takumars that I have give very good image quality on digital.
