I don't understand your comment. With the EOS-1n and custom fn #4 (which
many people use as standard) as well as the Contax AX, AF is activated
with a button. Therefore AF is just as easy as with a straight MF camera
- - i.e. you turn the focusing ring on the lens whenever you like.

On the other hand AF is always a button press away - whenever you like.
