Ahh thanks. Not that big of a deal really, I mean when you're snapping away in AF you don't really stop to manual focus right?
Seems like it would be faster to just take another pic if the AF misses, rather than turn to manual focus.
I guess I'll find out how important/useful the lack of the feature is once I get the lens. For now, I have no clue, just seems like it's not that big of a deal.
Not best example, but its mine... yesterday whilst out taking some [Ie: few hundred] shots of a spring [water version, not metal], I'd let the camera / lens AF first, and then I'd MF to get the composition, DOF, etc. that I was after. As mentioned above, that is one of the reasons why the Canon peaked above the others, for me.
lol as to the buyer's remorse... 'tis a bad buggery habit of mine; drives the woman crazy(er) . Research stuff to death, make a decision, and then [the bad part] continue to read more, always after that proverbial "best".
