Default What A Great Idea....

I wish I could say I thought of this...

http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/re...ssage=42070413

I rarely, if ever, manually focus with my micro lenses. The focus rings are electronic fly-by-wire, so the ability to add/change the functionality would seem perfectly doable. The ability to customize the focus ring to do something else like, maybe, an aperture dial sure sounds like an interesting proposition.

G'day Greg

Just had a sqwiz at your link - yes mate > wonderful idea
I have noted for the last couple of years that while the superzooms are getting better & better with their lens & anti-noise capabilities, the hi-end SLRs are copying many of the superzoom features into the SLR body too

This does seem to be one that could make a huge difference to the way most of us go about things ~ well done for spotting this 'other' thread

Regards, Phil
