    Red face Manual workout

    Well, after several images and trials, I have to admit ... the Manual Focusing screen seems to be quite useful compared to the naked-eye. No matter how I can recall it, this split screen has gotten me closer than any other method I have used on the digital SLR ... so I feel it has been a worthwhile investment.

    I liken it to using bifocals ... if you don't need them and are using AF on your camera, most of the time, don't bother. But if you do manually focus ... it can be a heck of an assist.

    Speaking of which, I have not really noticed much impact to the autofocus system ... it seems to work without any detrimental effect. YMMV.

    I need to use it with the two MACRO lenses (90mm & 180mm) I have to get the overall feel for it, but without a doubt ... practical use of the manual lenses is, once again, back.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.
