I took out another manual focus lens today on my Fuji X-T2.  It is a Pentax Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 200/4, from the 1970s.  It's biggest shortcoming is that its closest focus distance is 2.5 meters (8.2 ft.)  Insects were not cooperative, so I moved toward the bird feeder support post, where this male Purple Finch was giving me the message that I was disturbing his snack.


The lesson learned was that old guys best stick to autofocus.
