Dirk: Your replies to Paul collectively imply
your belief that 6008 AF speeds are too slow to
keep up with running horses, charging wildlife,
fast-approaching dogs, aircraft flying by, etc.
If so, what is it useful for? My eyesight isn't
the best anymore (diabetes), so I thought AF
would be a big help, but I don't want to spend
money foolishly. I plan to use telephotos a lot,
and could use one less thing to do, provided that
the AF doesn't leave me wishing for more AF
speed. I don't actually NEED MF, but I would
just like to have it, just for the sheer novelty
of it, and for the larger negative/slide size.
Please advise - your 2 cents worth would be much
more valuable than that!}}}
