Maybe I did not explain it well.
I use manual focus lenses a lot for landscapes. All the tilt-shifts. If I were to add another landscape lens it would probably be a Zeiss MF of some focal length. I like zooming in to then achieve critical focus, and also look at foreground versus background with the tilt-shifts. At the present time it is amazingly difficult to do. I can get close, but am never 100% sure. I can use viewfinder for focus with the tilt-shifts, looking for the green dot. But only up to a point when the shift and or tilt is applied. Then it stops working. My understanding was, and it may have been one of your threads RRRoger, is that even when using an external monitor, you still have the same "marching ants" type problem. A larger monitor does not make it better, only bigger?
Of course if I use an AF lens, with contrast detect focus - zoomed in, it works fantastic.
