Hi

Will just add that it is "no nightmare" focusing with the voigtlanders. With magnification it is a very easy and satisfying experience. The 17.5 is my favorite lens

Hi, thanks for the reply.

Ok, maybe "nightmare" was indeed too dramatic, but no doubt it would have been much harder than with AF, as the subject was also moving due to the pose and wind and when you magnify the view to focus, you can't see your composition anymore, which is also not ideal.

In general I also enjoy manual focus lenses a lot, but find them quite often not too practical for me personally.
