Non-Servo?

Hi

I'm planning on getting this camera soon after I get another 1,500.00 together. The description in the B&H catalog says the lens is "non-servo". Does that mean there is no buttons to get a smooth steady zoom? Can I only zoom using the zoom ring? I would miss that as I often do slow, smooth pans with zoom/out on product shoots.

Thanks.

Chad

Hi, of course that there are buttons for zooming,
you'll find them two locations, zooming speed is selectable too.
There's a switch to use when changing from the buttons to ring, so you can switch off the servo if you prefer full manual zooming.
