Need a new camera to replace an ailing D300, There's a lot to like about the 5300 but I've read bad things about manual focusing. I have two Zeiss manual focus lenses which I love. Obviously I use live view, with magnification -- aging eyes and all. I know that the 5300 can do this, but I've read that it's very slow --the magnifying part. Any relevant experiences?
