Perhaps, it's fun to begin with. But as it turns out, you will soon find that manual focus can lead to a very tiring eye and body, especially after a consecutive 350 shots cycle.
Manual photography also dictate manual setting of ISO, and shutter speed. So, don't expect to go into a scene with your mind still thinking about your day or the food you just ate. You will be in a pack of trouble. Manual focusing also mean using a big view finder to achieve easier focus with your naked eye. So, drop that magnifier eye piece that provides magnification at the expense of bigger view area. It's worth it.
Lastly, manual photography also implies the manual toggling of the lens aperture size, which basically determine your room for focusing error. Well, that's what I found after shooting manual today, over my TGIF dinner.
