Just think, it would allow MF override without risk of damage, or the necessity of clutches, and if implemented with a variable rate focusing speed as a function of how fast you move the focusing collar, then perhaps it would be acceptable, the question is, would the focusing ring even be on the lens, or would it be a toggle like many P&S cameras'
That sounds like the Olympus OM101 from 1988: Olympus OM-101 / OM-88 - Camerapedia
