Re: I used to own an FZ50

I owned an FZ1000. With the manual ring selector switch set to "Zoom", rotating the ring would zoom the lens similarly to zooming a DSLR lens. However, the responsiveness of the fly-by-wire system left a lot to be desired...there was lag and a general lack of feel.

When I gifted the FZ1000 to make room for an FZ1000 II, I was delighted to find that rotating the Control Ring on the FZ1000 II zoomed the lens without lag or a lack of feel. IMO, on the FZ1000 II, zooming the lens in this manner seems like an exact analog of zooming a DSLR lens. I have completely stopped using the zoom lever around the shutter button.
