On Olympus 4/3 cameras, there is a menu setting to reverse the clockwise / counter-clockwise direction of focus.

Is there a similar setting on Pano bodies? (I can't find it).

As a person shooting video, who switches back and forth from native 4/3 lenses to Nikon manual focus lenses with an adapter, (that focus in the opposite direction) this is driving me nuts.

Any solutions?

I have to say its a real good suggestion. As one who uses muscle memory to focus its why I've standardised on my MF lenses (more or less) as it drives me nuts too.
that and aperture direction.

I feel for ya. Apparently its not a concern for some folk, but it is for me. Which is why I have also standardised on the one focus direction - well sort of... landscape lenses shouldn't need muscle memory to function as needed... :tongue:
