I forgot to mention this in my initial report:

The manual focus travel on the RX1 lens is very long, so don't expect to focus from extremes with a simple twist. I would say it is as long as my 100mm Makro Planar, but the MP is more usable, since most of the focus rotation is for extreme closeups where you need the accuracy, but at longer distances is quite manageable.

Does the focus travel change with the ring rotational speed ? It seem to be the case with the RX100.

I don't know. Did not really have time or presence of mind for systematic testing. I suppose I could have learned more with the opportunity. Truth is I didn't expect to have as much time as I did handling the camera, or perhaps I would have planned to make better use of it.
