Lenses with clutches

I have a Pen F now, and the 12mm f2.0. It has a clutch that allows manual focusing, which is my first choice. The 75mm f1.8, however does not have this feature.
Question: why on one and not on the other??

The 75mm 1.8 was released before the 12mm 2.0, which was the first lens with a clutch from Olympus. Now you can add most of the newer "pro" lenses as well. The 3x f2.8 zooms, 25mm 1.2 and 300mm f4. None of the f1.8 lenses have a clutch.

thanks- I will probably get the 17. I have the 12 and the little pancake zoom 14-42, which is not impressive. My leica M lenses are about the same size as the AF Oly lenses, so if you don't need autofocus, they are a good fit.
