I just received my Ronin-S yesterday.  I have tried several Ronin-s approved Nikon lens and while the record button on the Ronin activates focus and start/stop record, the focus wheel does not change focus.  I have tried Manual, Aperture priority, continues and single autofocus.  Nothing seems to be doing the trick.  I appreciate any feedback from the community.

Hi SeaReid75, sorry for the difficulties on pulling focus, have you updated Ronin-S to the latest version? To pull focus with Ronin-S, please set the lens focus mode to M/A, and make sure the camera focus mode is set to AF.

I want to buy D850 also, is it really not works ? Maybe I need to sell my Ronis S before purchase D850 ? DJI what do say ?

I have problem too with pull focus on D850. Ronin and camera updated to the latest firmware. Led on focus wheel is steady green ( before firmware update it was blinking red) but the camera doesn't react at all on focus wheel. Shutter button and autofocuc works, but wheel is dead. Tried with 2 different supported lenses. Any suggestions?

Hi there, may I verify if you have set the lens focus mode to M/A and make sure the camera focus mode is set to AF?

I am also Having problems getting the focus wheel to work. Are tamron lenses not compatible with the Ronin S ? if not then i have just wasted nearly £700. Surely the Ronin only needs to be compatible with the camera and not the lens as the camera have its own auto focus motor.
