    I can't see where or if I can focus manually. What's up?

    Manual focus with E-mounts are handled via focus by wire. The 16-50 has a knurled ring at the front that you turn to invoke manual focus.

    Set the focus option to DMF, to allow manual focus override to fine tweak focus if AF wasn't on the spot you wanted.

    It is the trend to dummy down lenses nowadays

    I have nothing against AF, but the more I shoot with A7R II, the more I appreciate manual focus. It is a particular kind of pleasure...
