In short, unlike the other XF primes, you need to use the lens mechanism to have manual focus. However, if you do, you lose focusing with the AE-L / AF-L back button. If you set the camera to manual focus but not the lens, you will be able to use the button, but not manually fine tune whatever focus it may choose to lock on. I had such lenses before, it´s a pain, besides a potential weakest link (you can break the lens mechanism if too heavy handed). More of an issue with longer focals of course, but all the same. So I temporarily put it in the fridge, until I know what Zeiss does with its 12/2.8 and I can really compare.
