OM-D EM-5 12-50 Kit lens: Do you get used to the moto-zoom?
Apr 19, 2013

I am on the verge of getting an OM-D but the 12-50 kit lens that it comes with is one of those motorized zoom ones. It sucks because it is so slow to zoom in an out. I am worried I would miss shots. Is this the case, or will I get used to it? I wish it had the manual option.

The nex I tried comes with a moto-zoom, but the atleast you rotate the barrel, and the zoom tries to follow. But the Oly zoom is essentially an in and out toggle type moto-zoom, which is pretty slow.

I am guessing they did this to keep the size of the lens down...

Thoughts? Advice?
