Hi Pablo,

I have a G5 and with my Panny lenses, turning the focus ring on the lens activates the focus assist, even of the shutter is partly depressed. Perhaps the problem is in the connection with your Sigma via the adapter.  When I shoot macro, I have set one of the custom settings to be manual focus since I find the MF far better for close focus applications, but I use only Panny lenses. I guess the other alternative would be to put the focus options on the quick menu - that way it would be relatively easy to move from one of the AF options to MF.

I hope you enjoy your G5, I love mine.
