Re: AF and super shallow DoF are overrated?

Not sure, if it would have been better. IMHO, most leica lenses perform really well wide open. In fact, the softness, if any, just adds to the glow. Both my apo 2.8 100, as well as this F4 80-200 are indistinguishable when it comes to sharpness between wide open and 5.6. My point with this thread, were not to criticize anyone else, just that it is still possible to have fun with a camera with no OIS, no AF and just an amazing interface when it comes to the camera and lenses.
