I see there are selector switches on some of the lenses. I've never saw these before. Mmmmmmm.

The big, high-end four-thirds lenses have distance selector switches to help make AF faster, so the lens does not have to run through the entire autofocus range if you are shooting a distant or closeup subject. Same with the 60mm f2.8 M. Zuiko Macro.
