It looks like the information on the 18-55 is scarce, being a new product - or maybe it's me, slow at getting the info I need... Does anyone know -

  • Is the focus by wire, as I found in some sources? or mechanical, hopefully.

  • Aperture ring - by wire as well?

  • Construction? mostly metal or full metal?

  • Barrel? How much does is extend at zoom?

Thanks!
