The Advantage of Manual Focus

It's been almost a week (only) since I began playing with manual focusing, and I am beginning to realize one key advantage of shooting manual - faster response time to capture what you really want, without the need to wait for AF to do her job first.

Of course, the downside is a constant need to adjust ISO and shutter speed but my first full manual lens - Lensbaby Muse, seems to answer that call pretty well! The fast and loose tilt/pull/push concept is really silky smooth and quick!

To increase my chance of a take-home image with the Muse, I now shoot exclusively at 4.5 FPS JPEGs.
