    Hi,

    I have a Lumix G2 with the 14-42mm kits lens. Is it possible to increase the sensitivity of the manual focus ring when in MF mode? Seems like you have to turn the ring a lot in order to get it from one side to the other....

    I have that combo too. I don't believe that it is possible to adjust the MF ring speed on that lens, although it would be great if someone could prove me wrong.

    There's no adjustment in the menu system. If you turn the ring faster it will change the the focus more than if you turn the ring the same amount slowly. At least that's what happens with my G2 and Lumix 14-45.

    Fred, I'm not noticing that on 14-42mm kit lens.

    It's possible I've imagined it. I don't focus manually very often. When I do I usually autofocus to get in the ballpark and hit the switch to manual to fine tune. At that point I want it to go slow.
