Yep, I'm one of those weirdos that actually LIKES my D40. Would I love a D80? Sure...donations can be sent to.....

So, I keep running across reviews etc. that talk about lack of compatibility with older lenses except with....(gasp)....manual focus.

Now, I haven't used anything but a point and shoot for...over 20 years. But I don't seem to recall *having* auto focus back in those dark ages.

And I've been known, lately, to turn my camera/lens to manual focus due to a regrettable tendency of auto focus to do what I tell it, rather than what I want it to do.

I'm contemplating picking up an older AF lens or two, to play with....is manual focus all THAT difficult?
