My Instagram handle is expectgrain and I’m always on the lookout for new people to follow and talk to. The autofocus mechanism emits a short half-second mouse-cough when seeking focus while the film wind motor is about as quiet as these things can ever be.

But it has been designed manua, so that a half press to focus is a mere hair trigger that needs almost no pressure. Reply Eddy September 12, cnotax 8: But here on 35mmc objectivity is only ever part of the story. Get ready for an attack of GAS.
