Snap focus & hyperfocus
The snap focus is fun, pull the focus ring towards oneself, changes the mode from AF to MF without any setting changes. The dampening of the focus ring makes it feels like a real manual lens, unlike "focus by wire", for those who own the Olympus mZD 12mm/2 will feel right at home. And it also has focus limiter at both which is great, again unlike focus by wire which will just keeps on turning...and turning...
The distance scale seems accurate so far, however...
There's 2 possible flaws found though with snap focus.
1. The focus limiter is not at infinity, one can turn it beyond infinity, unlike manual lenses, focus limiter will end at infinity. This happens to be same for Oly mZD 12mm/2 as well. Flaw for me perhaps, Olympus seems to think otherwise. I doubt the final production copy will correct that. Top picture shows infinity focus. Bottom pictures focus beyond infinity.
2, Set to Hyperfocus, the depth of field scale (with aperture markings) seems too conservative. At F5.6, hyperfocal distance should be 3.42m. & At F11, hyperfocal distance should be 1.72m. However on the scales, it doesn't seem so.
At F5.6, it shows much more than 3.42m.
At F11, it shows close to 3m (which in fact should be 1.72m)
The DOF scale if can be corrected would be easier to use, even though if not, hyperfocusing still will work, tested quite a number of shots with it, just conservative.
