    Yes, so they can sell more to gadget-obessed consumers who are led to believe that such things are necessary...

    A good manual viewfinder system (used skillfully) is fast, effective and still the most accurate way to focus.

    This would be on an AE-1P. Manual focus. 1 focus point (center split with ring around the split) to aid in focusing. Focusing done wide open, lens stops down to proper aperature as the shutter is tripped.

    It's not an issue of focus so much. Or... maybe it is... What I mean is that from my end-user perspective when I've done similar things in the past they've been in focus. The question is: is it my film my lens or myself?

    Right now I'm going to eliminate the third possibility. Oh, I admit I'm no expert and I do make mistakes. I don't think that's the case here, though.
