Thank you for your responses.
I plan to use the MF for shooting images that express my connection with the subject in a more profound way. Subjects will include nature, adults, children, etc. I do not plan to shoot in rapid succession with the MF. I will save these exposures for thought-out ideas that I'd like to translate into images.
You make great points about the utility of each. I appreciate your thoughtful responses and look forward to hearing more.
