In my mind, one of the three controls, the un-clicked Step Ring, is not optimal for controlling anything but focus.

First off, thank you for taking the time and effort to address so many questions here. As you can tell, folks in this hemisphere are craving information from hands-on users. You've been very helpful, and I hope this process has helped you to sort out your own thoughts and perceptions.

Does your reference to "the un-clicked Step Ring" above mean there is no tactile feedback when rotating the inner ring at all? No click or pause to let you know you've changed to the next step? That's a bit disappointing,to say the least. I wasn't too concerned about the limitations on the number of manual control interfaces, but it only makes sense to be able to tell when you've stepped on a step ring. Is this because different functions would offer a different number of steps spaced differently?
