Thanks Na I have some old manual lenses that I may try with the KR, but I'm liking the whole auto-focus, auto-exposure thing.

I like my autofocus too! Probably because I'm near sighted & would be unreliable at manual focus.

Welcome to the Forum

Welcome. Hope you enjoy and learn a lot.

I like auto focus at certain times. However, with the old lens and Catch in Focus feature, I do not miss autofocus. If they had invented Catch in Focus first, we might not have ever invented autofocus!
