and needlessly snarky.

No, just was a comment. No snarky intent. I'm 99% snark free zone. Next time I'll find the smiley button.

Anyway, the relevant reading is here http://asia.olympus-imaging.com/products/dslr/mlenses/12-40_28_pro/feature/ and down the page near the bottom shows the clutch mechanism.

Have done the "what the?" thing myself a couple of times, but was aware of the ring and fixed it in a second. Maybe as the brain cells fade in old age I will get trapped more often.

By the way, it's such a nice lens, I haven't used anything else since getting it.

Yep guy, one can definitely buy the 12-40 and consider it a bargain to be honest at a $1000 USD...can't wait to get my hands on the 7-14 and 300 f/4...

Mr Ichiro Kitao, I support the call to upgrade the FZ50.
I will not only buy one but two no questions asked...
