This was my 'Wedding Camera' for many years since late 1980's and I had no trouble with 'manual Focus' as that is all I ever had!

I remember times, where you had no other choice shooting with MF glasses! Friends

I was using for it an ROLLEIFLEX SL66, an 6x6 WIESE PENTASIX 636, and a CONTAX 645 AF! NO SWEAT!

Bit of a strange read for an old medium format wedding "photographer".
The waist level finder and it's magnifier were sufficiently fast enough for me, and I did not waste much film with OOF shots.

An old pro told me to use enough flash~ following that advice sure saved me a lot of grief.

Sorry to resurrect something this old- I was actually in here looking for something else Wink

Shooting a wedding with MF is a great learning exercise - especially at f1.4. Whether or not your customers want to be guinea-pigs is another question! Looks like you did great though.
