Thanks so much for the quick response. I am scared of ML. I have only one camera body and I am fearful that something will go awry. I like the idea of a follow focus. Were you using that from 3:50 to 4:14 in your video? Everything remains crisp there and you don't suffer from the AF "focus hunt" and whirring sound I have lamented so! I just bought a manual focus gear for my Macro lens/port but to do the same for my wide angle would be yet another $750. Ugh!! What an expensive passion to have.

Nice! Did you solely use AF for all the wide angle or did you use any MF?

Nice. What kind of tripod are you using? I seem to only wrestle with mine. 

In Topic: AF or MF

Hi all: Feedback on this would be much appreciated. Going back soon to Raja Ampat for my third trip and I plan on shooting a little more video this time than usual. I am shooting with my Canon 5dmkIII in a Nauticam housing. I am wondering whether anyone has had much success using a manual focus ring for wide angle video shooting on a DSLR? AF works fine I guess but there is always that annoying "focus hunt" that occurs (with the accompanying whirring sound). It seems like I could benefit from the initial AF but then fine tune a moving subject with manual. However, it is spendy to buy this and I don't want to waste my money if it is too difficult or problematic to use. Any thoughts?
