I can easily put my 12 ~ 40 mm zoom into manual focus mode by pushing the focusing ring forward, but the mechanical action is heavy and nowhere near as pleasant to use as a proper manual focus OM lens.
Nigel, I would have commented had I seen the picture in the Nostalgia section but its not a section I visit.

I find the manual focus ring on my 12-100 somewhat annoying as it occasionally catches me out. Id prefer a simple switch like the existing IS on/off switch.
