You do realize that you can focus the 12-32 manually using the controls on the back. No, not as convenient as traditional manual focus, but possible. The latest firmware update for the GX7 adds manual focus with the 12-32.

Yes, but I've heard nothing about how it will work on Olympus models yet. Some lenses, like the 3D lens, have only had rare and obscure support on Olympus.

Not to mention those fully-digital controls are likely to be even less accurate than normal by-wire focus. Which is a significant problem, since accuracy is what manual focus is all about. It's good that they've provided some way of doing it, but it's clearly an "emergency only" feature on this lens.
