    Well, since a display on optics has already appeared, then you need to use its functionality to the maximum.
    To work with a tripod, I can well imagine information such as ..
    - Focusing distance (basic infa)
    – The near limit of acceptable sharpness (additional information)
    – Far limit of acceptable sharpness (additional information)
    – Hyperfocal distance (additional information)
    – General depth of field (additional information)
    – weather forecast and recipes (alternative information)

    • Arkady Shapoval

      other lenses have had such a display for many years

      • Andy From Far Away

        There is that is ... I saw them on Zeiss. They just display the same thing as the usual window of any other lens. It's like installing a display on the bumper of a car to display a license plate. It seems to me that if technologies are already being introduced, then the potential must be fully used, and not just “highlighting”.

          On the film Pentax macro 100 was still.
