Great remark! I agree. I skipped an entire generation of EOS cameras; the EF film cameras. I thought that I could manual focus faster and more accurately than the EF cameras could autofocus.

After purchasing my various DSLR cameras, I realize thet the EF camera can do a better and faster job of focusing in virtually all venues except macro.

And guess what? My Manual focus Canon cameras could do a better job of focusing manually than can the EF DSLR cameras...
