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. 😁 <https://photos.app.goo.gl/tjsHnhsqQ3YSKS358>

What if the Hokey Pokey *IS* what it's all about?
