Follow focus on Lumix GH5

Trying to use a follow focus on GH5. Problem is, every time I refocus, it shifts. Lens is Panasonic 12-35 and has a focus ring with no markings.

Is it possible to use a follow focus with this lens/camera? I need to use the hard stops on the follow focus without the focus point shifting every time I refocus.

Alternately, I'm looking for a zoom that has a manual focus ring with markings that would fit this camera.

Hi Brian
I believe that the new Zuiko Pro range of lenses has a clutch on the focus ring that overrides the electronic focus.
I also need manual focus for multicam video productions, but have gone a less expensive way with legacy Zuiko lenses and K&F OM to M43 lens adapters.
Best regards
Peter
