If you have been here before, you will remember my post with the Minolta MC 58mm 1.2, love that lens for its bokeh characteristics and the model/camera distance (or lack of it) however, mf isn’t always the best choice, especially if you have a model who really likes to move. Shooting wide open in continuous af mode will certainly produce a bunch of blurry pictures, however, when you nail it, you will be rewarded with an energy in your shots you cannot get when staging.
here is a sample sequence of 6 shots, Polina working the camera, walking back and forth, one blur only
