Is it right to assume that if you are to use the DMF ficus mode you are out of luck with manual focus on that lens, without flicking a switch back and forth every time?

If you switch to MF, the ring is assigned the duty of focusing ring. When in AF mode, it likely defaults to manual zoom. However, if the function is programmable, DMF may be an available option (with AF of course).
