You mean you get autofocus confirmation in the viewfinder, as the converter cannot truly focus these manual lenses automatically.
Yes it can. That is an AF converter (you might need to prefocus the lens somewhat - depending on the lens)

If you have to preset or turn your manual focus ring to a midway point, than it's not complete autofocus, now is it.

I understand it will fine tune, but it certainly will not completely turn your manual focus lens into a hands free autofocus lens. Therefore, the correct term should be "semi-autofocus" functionality with manual focus lenses.

I'd rather just manual focus than tinker with a combination of the two.
