Pancake Lens Question

I have been looking through the specs for the new lens.I might have missed it but does anyone know if its mechanical focus or focus by wire??
I really like the mechanical focus of the 12-60 especially for close ups.
This may influence if I buy it or not.

Re: Pancake Lens Question

AFAIK it will be fly by wire. So far only the new SWD have a mechanical focus ring, and this definately isn't SWD. However I'm sure it will be worth trying it once released to see how it feels.
All the best,
Phil
