Hi

In finding a manual wide for D800 video (nice and light and cheap, and AF is bad in video) (24 2.8 AI), I discovered that when you crank the focus out to infinity and hit the stop -- it is focused at infinity.

Wow. No more of this "infinity and beyond" they build into the new lenses for whatever reason. For landscape and distant stuff, I don't need autofocus. And that is a lot of my shooting.

So... if 14-24, 24-70 and 70-200 + holy trinity of AF lenses, what is the equivalent trinity in the MF world?

I have more than enough high-end Nikon AF lenses. Now I move into a retro phase.
