    And it's not for me.. lol I'm blind as a bat and trying to manually focus, forget about it. I ended up on a tripod using live view and I still had problems. I'm sure if I kept at it I may get a few in focus. _MG_4584.jpg

    I have a Helios and find that with focus peaking and whatever that is where you zoom in on the focus point In the viewfinder, I can achieve manual focus - but I use it for stationary objects not people.

    IMO, the shot is actually not bad.
    Lighting is a bit soft and darker than I would like, but otherwise the overall feel of the picture is actually quite nice.
