I bought the 35mm "dslr emulator" on a trial basis. Attracted to hand-zoom lens as motorized zoom is the "weak link" (in terms of camera mean time between failure) on motorized non-dslrs (where entire camera is not lost when zoom fails).
I did not expect that hand zoom twisting would be other than ultra-smooth... like a high quality scope. What is the general experience with this camera's zoom smoothness? Other such cams? How decide whether to keep or to return camera?
Camera is 30x/60x with fine focus ring.
