Re: 45's focus ring?

Eric, you spoiled me by now  so I take the opportunity to ask another question:

How is the feel/smoothness of the manual focus ring? (Did not see that subject being mentioned here or in your review yet ~ I believe)

I need to get better about mentioning focus, which is what I am working up to measuring focus speed.  I rarely use MF with my Samsung lenses

It is focus by wire, but relatively smooth.  The manual focus speed is slow but precise.  Nice for DMF use if you just want to tweak slightly, very slow to go from infinity to close focus, switch to autofocus and get close first.
