The zoom action brings a things into rapid zone focus and then the focus ring works with the focus peaking to enable rapid focus selection.

I use saf with mf to enable tweaking. On my quick play I just switched the lens to MF.

I will stick to my current set-up but if you have an EX25 then it may be worth a play. Not sure of the benefits against teleconverters. Not my area.
I also have the tube. I can't see it helping at roof level!

Just saw our first Orange Tips, two males, and saw a Holly Blue twice this morning.
