I am not trying to be argumentative (I know I come across as such sometimes) - perhaps its the cameras I have nadled, as you say. On the other hand - perhaps this is more correct way to phrase it - while there seems to be some correlation on the higher end, I don't recall anything in SLR lenses taht dos a 1/4 turn, like the QL for example. It was just one of those things that struck me as a user when the RF's where new to me - and I am quite willing to concede that it may be largely a personal reaction based on the cameras I was used to.

Either way, all the best!
