    I was unaware that was possible. Where have you read of that option?

    Can't be done. Oly cameras give you the option to change the focus ring I believe yes, because this is electronic (focus by wire), but definitely not the zoom, as this is mechanical.

    X2 - and Oly lenses focus "backwards" than most other lenses
