LOVING my RoninS on the D850... question: is there any means of adjusting the sensitivity of the focus wheel? While it does work, I'm having to turn it a LOT to show appreciative focus change... I was hoping to be able to ramp up the amount of focal change per turn of the wheel?
thanks!

I agree. The same is for me.
I would like the sensitivity to be a parameter.

From what I see, the focus wheel is not a one-to-one adjustment.  The faster you turn the wheel, the larger the focus move.  The slower you turn the wheel, the slower the adjustment.  This might not be true on all brands of cameras, but for my Panny Gh5s, it is true.

I would like this feature too,

with the canons it is 1 2 1 at any speed, in my opinion, it should be like this to allow you to do accurate pull focuses, but its a few full rotations of the wheel to go form minimum distance to infinity and this doesn't make for easy smooth pulls.

as I see it it should have sensitivity from 1/4 turn to go full range on the lens through to the levels it is now.  the option for 121 and speed of movement to adjust sensitivity and  these should be in the 3 mode settings for ease of switching on a shoot and needless to say on all cameras

Dji we would love to hear from you about this. The sensitivity on the focus wheel is way too sensitive. We would love an update or something.

Has there been any new information on this. Mine is also far to sensitive making what looks to be a fantastic product difficult to use. DJI could you weigh in here? Thanks.

The Ronin smartphone app has 2 modes for the focus wheel.  Fast & Slow.  They are both pretty much useless while filming.  I normally adjust the wheel before I start recording as it's kind of hard to turn and It took about a full turn just to go 1mm on the lens.  This was on a Sony a6500 with the 18-105mm.

Hi there, sorry for the troubles with the Focus Wheel, may we verify you are referring to the speed of the Focus Wheel is too sensitive to control or the physical Focus Wheel's knob? Any chance to share us a short video of the issue and the serial number of the Focus Wheel? Thank you in advance.
