Thanks all. Yes, I know about focus peaking. The Samsung system has it to some extent. Focus point moves freely accross the screen and can be minituarized for precise focussing on tiny spots. It also has some sort of zone focussing, best focus is reached when the green bar hits the little red stripe. And when the green bar is extended at its highest within the boundaries. Works fast and well. Still I sold the system, because, at least for now, the sensor of the nx200 is too noisy and colors not so nice. Raw upto 1600 is good. But I am mostly JGEG. That is what makes Oly so nice. But, to get the best from the omdem5 raw is even better.

Haven't tried Sony, the peaking king. Don't know if ever I will. Because that would mean I should not have sold all of the Takumars. Which I should not have done had there been a digital spotmatic. Grief.

All in all, I am happy to reduce my kit. I even sold my last dedicated photo bag. My daily kipling with an old insert works fine and comfortable. Waterproofing is by means of slipping a plastic bag around the insert.

Meanwhile, I am serious: no more mf lenses doesn't mean replacement with an equal number of af ones. Considering the fact that over the years my family bestowed over 80 of them, that would mean a certain financial death.
