Re: Thinking about getting a nifty fifty

no i have read that.

but i would quite like to mess about with the manual focus [i do a bit with the kit lens]
and at that price i think it is a winner.

The camera will still tell you when it is focused though, the focus dot in the viewfinder still works just have to do the work yourself
