No, I wasn't being sarcastic. Most of the time I use manual focus because it allows you to have complete control, which is something you should want when taking photographs. You can make a photo as crisp or blurry as you want.

what are some advice tips about using the Nikon D40 in manual mode? I know light exposure is of essence when getting your photos to come out crisp, but i want really crisp HQ images in darker settings. anyone know how to get that? & i mean w/o the flash.
