    Not me either. I like a fully mechanical camera best.

    Yeah, bit with that little bridge camera you don't have any option. It's either auto focus hokus pokus or no focus .

    i had to photograph missiles being fired off the side of a boat when i worked for a newspaper ..
    i HATE autofocus, and over-rided the whole auto mechanism on the camera ...
    it was worth it ... i won't say what kind of camera it was .. but it worked ( and works ) well
    in every other respect ...

    It takes a muscular couple of primes to murder, or even commit a mild assault on, the Contax Vario-Sonnar 35-70 zoom.

    A zoom is a prime too.

    If you put something on that zoom (or other prime), something like a close-up lens, or anamorphotic lens, that something would be the thing that is not a prime (and as a secondary makes the taking lens - whether zoom or not - the primary lens).

    So my vote today for the most overrated feature is the word "prime".

    As everything can be deemed essential to somebody, my 'most overrated' vote goes to the word 'overrated'.

    By reading through this thread it becomes obvious to me that there's no right answer to the question, it depends on the individual and the type of photography he/she is involved in, what might be essential to a sports photographer, might be useless for macro, or architectural photography.
