| p.2 #20 · Tired of Canon's AF System, Which DSLR is best for MF? |
I'm reading this thread and trying to figure out how sports photographers get in focus images with Canon.
Sports photographers usually don't use "primes that have wide apertures", which is the OP complaint.
Of course, the "(the sports and wide aperture" thing is certainly not always true, as the 200/1.8L is a fantastic sports lens for low light. Anyway. Canon has excellent AF. Even back to the old days, with the 20D that I started with, it was pretty OK, if you knew how to use it.
I sympathise with the OP's problems, but I would suggest that if you want to use excellent wide aperture lenses, then you should have a full frame camera. AF or MF, no nevermind.
P.S. that "Pentax 135mm F2.5 MF lens for $60" would likely be a "Takumar 135/2.5 (Bayonet)", which is worth about $25. An excellent manual focus SMC Pentax portrait lens like the "SMC Takumar 135/2.5" would cost about $200.
