Personally, I use AF quite often. It works great and is the answer to your question. If you’re shooting people and your camera has facial recognition it will help to ensure that the unmanned camera stays focused on the right subject matter. You can also close down your aperture a bit (using higher values) for greater depth of field to ensure that most everything remains in focus – at the cost of bokah.
