I am one who uses manual controls 95% of the time, but auto focus about as much. My eye sight isn't improving with age and in that regard, the camera does better than I do. Obviously, I set the AF area for where I want the camera to focus and it gets it right most of the time and certainly more than I would.

As for manual controls, I think it's folly to buy an expensive SLR with nice lenses and then let the camera decide everything. Or anything for that matter. That's just my own personal feeling, but there is more than one way to skin a cat, as the saying goes. (Although I never understood that saying, especially.) But just as our processing can differ greatly to get good results, so can the way we shoot.

Although my way is right.
