A communique with Gordon said that 'the manual focusing ring in the Sony A200 is not very good for professional use'(or something similar) and this kinda confused me.
The manual focusing ring is present on lenses, so would not be affected by the camera body. Was Gordon referring to a particular lens?
If not, he may have been talking about the Auto Focus motor built into the body of the A200. Unfortunately, I know very little about the Sony range so perhaps you could be a bit more specific and maybe some A200 owners could comment?
Hope I have been of some use
