I can quickly go from closeup to infinity very quickly with the manual control ring...

Thanks for that info! Here's why. We live near a Marine base, and I'm stalking the wild Osprey, at least the VF-22 kind. They show up rarely, and I want to be able to run out of the house, over to a fence where I can see them go by, and take a picture... on manual at infinity, since the XZ-1 auto-focus can't pick the far-away plane up against the sky. Actually, it does once in a while, but I can't count on it. So that lens control ring would work!
