I pretty much do the same thing, but differently. I have the AF button set to lock out AF, so I’ll depress the shutter until I get focus then lock it with the AF button. Same thing, but in normal conditions I don’t have to think about explicitly focusing. I was using the 35/1.4 rather than the 31/1.8 in the low light explicitly because I needed the extra 2/3 of a stop, stopping down a couple of stops would have been counterproductive. :-) > > Ralf > > -- > Ralf R.
