Yes. I only shoot manually. I mean completely manually. I use older lenses, as they are cheap, and often produce better results than the current plastic barreled lenses Nikon currently offers. That's not to say current lenses suck, but their build quality is terrible. My favorite lenses are 24mm, 50mm, and 85mm. On an FX format (FF), they're exactly what I want. On a DX format, they're exactly what I need.
