It's amazing how kids can make you feel eh?
But about AF. I have been using it on my Cont*x G2 (and G1 before I
sold it), C*non G5 and Olympus LT-1. The latter is the fastest, the
former the most accurate, and the middle the sloooowest (in low light
at least). You comment about being "more tolerant" of AF is spot-on:
for me it is an obstacle to be overcome sometimes, rather than a boon.
