Hi all, have any owners of the FZ2000 used the manual focus and if so noticed

I believe that would be the "focus peaking" feature. It's a visual display of what is in focus (through highlighting the edges of what the camera is focused on), hence is very useful for manual focus as without the feature, it can sometimes be difficult to determine whether the focus is tack sharp.
