Hey all, I've been on a manual everything kick for the last little bit, remembering the fundamentals that I used to use back in the day's before every little thing could be done for me by the camera. As I read posts on here I keep hearing about how the Olympus E-5 can't autofocus well for fast sports, or birds etc, and it got me thinking what did we do back in the olden days, where the only autofocus was how fast we could turn the focus ring, I have seen and looked up many photographs taken in the days before autofocus, and they did extremely well, so what happened? I wonder if we have become a little complacent with technology, and we have lost our way a bit, since its easier to let the camera do its thing. do we now look at a situation and say well it can't autofocus, and pack up and go home? Now I'm not trying to flame anyone here, I don't want this to become a flame thread, and I will be honest I don't get out much so I can't and havent judged the autofocus of the camera's, the fastest thing in my house is the cats, and they spend 99% of their day sleeping. I am just curious as to how people feel about this?
