I checked it in Len user-manual but Sony didn't mention about Full-time manual feature. I also checked it on Sony website but I didn't find any resources too.

Does anyone know the Len has Full-time Manual feature?

I found this in this forum - http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/50283922

The 18-135 lens is unique among the SAM lenses, in that it is the only one that allows full-time manual focus (like you get with the SSM lenses).

I also found this

Micromotor-type AF motor with full-time manual focusing

Thank you!

My research seems to indicate that it does have the "Full Time Manual Focus" feature.

It seems to me that there is very little documentation on Sony lenses, which is a pity. :(
