Is there a follow focus gear for the stock 18-200mm lens that comes with the FS700?

Re: Follow Focus Gear for stock 18-200 lens??

You could use a number of them with a 15mm rail system but I doubt whether anyone would as the focus ring on the 18-200 is a fly by wire ring and repeatable focus pulls with it are nigh on impossible. Trying to pull focus with that lens is a very frustrating experience.

For normal focusing you are better of with the momentary focus button on the side of the camera body or the 'Touch Focus' mode via the touch screen which works surprisingly well. All you do is tap the screen at the point in the image that you wish to be your main focus point.
