Gary, yes, that's how I do it. I usually use a pencil and prefocus on that, use autofocus to nail the focus and then set to manual because I know that it won't focus fast enough. That's not the problem. I am wondering if in manual focus when I do regular waterdrops, which I will include one here so you can see what I'm talking about, if I zoom in manually because it's almost impossible to use autofocus for this type of waterdrops, I don't see the advantage of the live view because the red box doesn't turn green when zoomed in and in manual focus. It would be so much easier that way, but does it not work in manual??? Is that clear? Here's a shot I'm working on, but I just can't nail the focus using just regular manual focus through the viewfinder....



Pete, if you're reading this post: I think I can see a really nice improvement over the sharpness of my down sampling particularly in this photo. So here's my work flow, just to check and see if I'm doing it how you told me...I do my editing, sharpen, change my image size for nikon, use bicubic sharper, the go back and sharpen once more. Is this correct? If so,,,then I think I got it...I do think this looks almost as good as the one I'm enlarging.....Let me know...
