OF WHEN MANUAL FOCUS
IS SUPERIOR TO ANY AUTOFOCUS

With wide-angle lenses, the focus range is so deep that focusing with the hyperfocal distance often leaves more control over image composition than auto focus.

The term "hyperfocal distance" sounds complicated at first, but it's easy to explain - and even easier to use.

FUJI GFX 100 vs. FUJI GFX 50 vs. LEICA SL2

Actually, I was well positioned with my two FUJI medium format cameras - until the LEICA SL2 came along.

At least one of these three cameras - whether one of the FUJI's or the LEICA I just acquired - I would sell at the end of my test.

Namely, the camera that would stay at home the most often.

I test each lens on my test chart as soon as I receive it and have learned a lot about the quality standards of the different manufacturers. My conclusion will surely surprise some of you.
