comment Can manual focus be faster than autofocus?
By working I mean shooting since focusing is happening wide open. Lower aperture especially everything < 4.5 forces you to know exactly what you want to focus on. Take a portrait for example. Focus for the eyes instead of the nose, you can see the difference with such low values. Larger aperture gives you more tolerance to master your first steps in manual focusing, since you have an increased depth of field. Many lenses have distance markers printed on the barrel.
