I know, I know, it is 2020, some of you will argue, there’s no way I’m dealing with Manual Focus Lenses in 2020. Next thing you’re gonna tell me to buy a Huawei P40 phone and spend 20 hours every single frakking week hunting for new hacks and loopholes to run Google Play on them 😉

And you would be right if your typical subject matter or your style of photography requires autofocus. But a lot of things don’t move at all, others move in predictable ways, and in these COVID-stressful times there’s a certain level of relaxation and grounding when you use manual focus. And in some ways, it forces you to pay closer attention to the scene you are photographing…
