XA40 focus ring very slow

I have my XA40's focus ring response time set at the fastest yet it takes two and a half full turns of the ring to focus from 1mtr to 4mtrs this seems very slow to me?

Re: XA40 focus ring very slow

Hi there,


These focus rings are electronically coupled rather than mecahnically coupled so they are going to respond more significantly with a faster turn than with a slower turn even when those turns go the same distances, so I expect you will be able to affect the focus more significantly with less turning when you turn the ring faster.
