I always struggle with manual focus, I can never see through the viewfinder if it’s clear or not! So auto focus set point for me all the way. But then I do usually to take a series of shots, and when one is out of focus, I tend to find the next is fine.
Guessing it’s useful in low light for subjects that are fixed? Not the easiest with kids and dogs racing around!
Interested to hear from those who do shoot in manual focus and reasons to use it.
