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.
Duh! I'm maybe 14 years younger, and still have excellent eyesight, and I don't even try to manually focus for things
that fly, flit, jump or otherwise move quickly. 😁
I do shoot with a variety of old MF lenses, but not those sorts of subjects.
I occasionally find motion blurred photos appealing, but not everyone agrees with me. 😁
