For those of you who are having trouble getting your images focused when using manual, you can change the focusing screen to a split screen, like the older SLR cameras used to have. It requires dextarity and a clean environment but can be done at home. Screens run about $40 - $80 depending on type of camera. This does not affect the auto focusing of the camera but replaces the screen that is supposed to assist you in seeing if the image is in focus. I am not affiliated with any of the following links but they are well worth the time to peruse.
