Thanks for your prompt response to my questions:

This may be purely semantics but can I confirm my understanding that you either actually focus manually rather than using the lens' autofocus features or instead that you use autofocus with one autofocus point?


From your comment about things you change.  Do you use Live View mode to set up your shot?  If so, are you using a tripod or other device?



He means Manual shooting mode, not manual focus.  But, it does sound like the camera is being used like a smart phone.

Robodot  - I am aware that you use a larger font when writing, and from your comments you, like me, are not as young as  you were and assumedly have some eyesight issues - common enough as we get older.   Do you find it easier when focusing to use the screen at the back of the camera rather than the viewfinder?
