Why does my 24-105 have a different magnification (macro ratio) from a 105mm macro lens at same MFD?

Oh, I see. You actually have the working distance calculated automatically. Very handy.

I see how you zoom, but how do you focus the zoom lens?

For that lens Panasonic Lumix S 24-105mm F4 Macro OIS (and many others) you need to consult other scenarios. Normally I only have enough information to do zoom or focus and usually zoom takes precedence.
Look for the Previous and Next Scenario buttons.

Oh, I see. It's Scenario 4. Thanks.

Nice tool.  I hadn't really looked at it much before.
