Lumix 14-42mm - question
May 8, 2012

Hello,

I'm considering the Panasonic G3 (I really like the Oly OM-D, but it's too pricey for me). The thing is, I've just read that the kit lens 14-42mm that it comes with has manual focus by wire. I have a really bad experience with electronic focus rings. I have Fuji HS20 and though I love this camera the manual focus is a joke on this model.

So my question is, is the manual focus similar to the Fuji? Or does it feel more like on normal DLSR lenses? Is it responsive and accurate?

Thank you in advance for your responses.
