I think linear focus is an advantage to stills shooters as well. I've always found speed-based focus to be almost unusable for any purpose.

Surprisingly, I don't mind it on fast primes, but find it absolutely terrible on slower zooms. The PL 8-18 being the worst. The difference between trying to manual focus my Laowa 10mm and the 8-18 is staggering. I'm really looking forwards to trying out linear focus on the 8-18 for sure. And my Lumix 12-35 f2.8II.

Agreed. I have the 10–25 and the manual clutch has been wonderful for stills. Unfortunately, this update won’t apply to GH5. Maybe there is a GH5II or a GH6 in my future.  🥴
