I have Nikon D5000 which lacks in-body focus motor. I also have imperfect vision. When trying to manual-focus, results are not perfect. I could save a fortune by buying AF rather than AF-S lenses.
My question is whether any DSLR, D5000 or other, can give me indication, in viewfinder, of whether I shall rotate the MF ring clockwise or counterclockwise. Maybe indication is there but I do not know where to look at ?
I think that even though lens lacks the focusing motor, body still has the sharpness detector that tells it which way to rotate the MF ring. So why it does not indicate it on viewfinder ? Does SLR exist that does indicate this as a help to MF ?
