My hat is off to you. Almost no-one can do that successfully, hence the popularity of KatzEye when they were still around.

A bit of the thread topic - and perhaps playing referee - some photographers have better - or worse - eyesight than others.

Some for medical reasons do not have excellent eyesight - and some do.

As I do not have binocular vision I have my vision checked every 12 months.

I am not 80 yet - but can easily manual focus at 24mm f2.8 in moderate light with a D500 and D850.

At 14mm and 15mm I find manual focus a bit challenging but reasonably doable.

With the Z7 manual focus is easier than with my DSLRs - without zooming in for improved focus detail.

In lots of ways good photography is much more about how equipment is used rather than anything else.
