The majority of contemporary digital cameras come with an auto focus feature and we tend to solely rely on this to provide us with the quality of image required. However, many people forget about the usefulness of manual focus lenses.
Although auto focus lenses are especially handy in certain circumstances, there are occasions when MF lenses can come to the fore. Auto focus can sometimes get confused as to where it should be directing its attention and manual focus camera lenses can bring an end to such instances.
MF camera lenses can sometimes provide more pleasing results. It gives you the power to determine how your shot is taken and gives you a level of precision that you may never have before experienced. The key to using MF lenses is to practice on a regular basis as it can take time to get used to shooting both still and moving objects. But once you have managed to get the hang of it, you will not fail to be impressed by their functionality and practicality, it could even make your auto focus lens partially redundant.
Wilkinson Cameras stocks a range of Leica camera lenses and Leica M series lenses, perfect for those occasions when your auto focus lens wonâ€™t focus as it should do on a moving object or in a certain light. Manual focus lenses will help you overcome such difficulties and when used successfully they will help you put together a portfolio of snaps as never seen before.
