So I've just noticed DJI have added what appears to be a new product to their website - the Focus Thumbwheel (https://m.dji.com/product/dji-focus-thumbwheel) l. As a Ronin user who also owns the "DJi Focus" follow focus unit for the times I need a focus puller, I'm seriously hoping that this new Thumbwheel means I can pull the focus myself from the handles. Does anyone know if this is indeed what the Thumbwheel is? I can't imagine what else it's for to be honest, but there's nothing that confirms it on the website or online. I really hope this is what every Ronin user has wanted from DJI since the Ronin was released! Talk to me...

yes.  that is what it is.  I have one.  SLIGHT problem: it doesn't come with the cable to connect to the focus motor, and there is no apparent way to purchase one.  So right now it is useless.

Interesting! So it won't connect to the motor wirelessly? Have a look at this link - flick through the pics of it and you'll see a cable that I assume would do the trick. What do you think? http://solectric.eu/dji/focus/focus-zubehoer/1452/dji-focus-thumbwheel-dji-focus-motor-cable-p35

Yep.  That is the cable you need, but I'd be very surprised if it is actually available.  According to DJI Technical support, the cable is not available yet.  If you are only going to use it on a ronin, you can also use the ronin expansion module cable -0Zgi?pm=custom but it can't be used on a movi or slider or anything else, so I'm just waiting it out until they release the cable you linked to above.  Really seems crazy not to include the cable when you buy it.
