Panasonic 12-32mm kit lens, missing manual focus
7 months ago

Many members of this forum seem to consider the acquisition of a Panasonic 12-32mm kit lens. This lens has a reputation for better sharpness than comparable kit lenses. As a disadvantage, manual focusing is not provided, except for the G1 camera.

I am surprised about the many posters in this forum, who do not regard this as a knockout drawback. My camera has the AF set for center spot focusing +MF all the time. I find myself making manual corrections quite often, and many pictures would have been impossible without the chance of selectively using the manual focus.

What is your experience as owners of this lens?
