Quite. But as I get older I find that I'm getting (slightly) better at not worrying about things and a lot better at avoiding Zone-style obsessiveness.

For the former, Churchill reputedly said in his old age, "I have had a lot of trouble in my life, most of which never happened."

For the latter, I see how many obsessives make great pictures, and I see how many ignoramuses make great pictures, and the balance seems surprisingly often to be on the side of the ignoramuses. This is because they take pictures rather than worrying about (or indeed knowing the meaning of) acutance or Zone placement.

As a result I can't bring myself to believe in searching for more precision than is needed (and indeed on occasion, in more precision than actually exists).
