Panasonic manages to always do something that is positively
infuriating ergonomically. Probably the worse offender to me is the
focus ring turning ratio which appears to be variable, but not quite
predictable when it switches from fast to slow. The slow is sludgy
slow. The fast is useless. I'd rather they have just one speed ratio
and match Olympus at it.
