I've been doing this on the street, using the 28/2 and the SF-20 (TTL and
sometimes manual) because there's no late afternoon light left at this time
of year in NY. Stop down a little, pick a zone and focus with your feet! I
mean by walking back and forth ;)

BTW, this is one place where the Motor Drive M has is all over the
Rabidwinder, and the camera strap is around my neck instead of my wrist.
